Yesterday, the report "Chinese Athletes Influence Index Chart 2016" by Sports Money was released to the public. Data from Baidu, unit in 10,000.



Guess who tops the top-10?


Volleyball, Basketball, and Soccer are the top-3 sports by the number of athletes who made it to the top-100.


Not too shabby for Badminton and Table Tennis.


Notable mention of other professional and niche sports.

The ones you got were spot on. Amazing!

Filling in the blanks:

1. ZJK
2. Ning Zetao (Swimming)
3. Lin Dan, otherwise known as Super Dan (Badminton)
4. Fu Yuanhui (Swimming), she may be nuts, but she still wants people to focus more on her swimming.
5. Sun Yang (Swimming)
6. Hui Ruoqi (Volleyball)
7. ML
8. Chen Long (Badminton)
9. Yi Jianlian (Basketball)
10. Zhu Ting(Volleyball)

The other 4 who made the top-100 were:

13. DN
16. LSW
24. LXX
35. XX

Losing to Mizutani definitely hurt.

FZD still has a long way to go.

i would be more interested, though, to see Chinese views on influence of ALL athletes, not just Chinese ones.

I was personally amused by my in-laws sayng that nobody cares about TT when they all had quite detailed knoledge (and dont play).  It was obvious people actually do care.  Otherwise, how would these people know what they did?

Right now the NBA is huge in China.

I'm not aware of an official list, but a netizen started one after Rio. Most of the answers are C Ronaldo, Messi, Beckham, Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, Michael Jordan, Bolt, Phelps, then Fukuhara, Lee Chong Wei, Waldner, Ishikawa...

Knowing don't necessarily mean care. For instance, I know the stupid Canuck inside out, but I don't care they make the playoff or get the 1st OA. Nowadays, unlike Mao era, only few  fans get so emotionally involved with CNT or tt in China.

In Baal's case, his in-laws argued on end who was the better legacy. That's hardly "don't care."

Does anybody care about tt?
Not half so near damn much as ME!

But I cared still more way back in the day
When tt was played way more my way.

I'm emotionally involved with the CNT,
But now they don't care a great deal
About me.

At least 20 minutes.  And while they argued, I ate.  In Sichuan  province, eating is one of the great joys of existence.

But I do get Egghead's point.  I honestly don't care about the absurd Houston Texans and their moronic owner, but I seem to be unable to avoid knowing something about them.

When it comes to celebrities, please put me in the "couldn't care less" group. 

Im so sick of hearing about Kim Kardashian or whoever. Why should I/we care about these people? How does it benefit my life what they do or who they do? They dont care about you!!! So get over them and live your life. just be happy and play table tennis.

FZD is just way too serious for a kid. He is not going to be doing crazy stuff just to get in the news.
