When Playing Basket Ball At School And College,

when picking a team, the players height was often considered an advantage,

screenshot from Sina Weibo, so at 7ft 5in (2.26m), Zhang Ziyu, a 14-year-old basketball player from Shandong, China, would be a wise pick as a player, especially given that that Zhang’s parents were both professional basketball players, but still, her stature is surprising, especially considering her age, She is already  taller than both her father (6ft 11in/2.13m) and her mother (6ft 6in/1.98m), 

but Zhang Ziyu has more than height going for her. Coming from a basketball family, she has been playing the sport since she was just 5-years-old and training under the watchful eye of her mother, a former member of China’s national team, hopefully she will be able to cope with the challenges of her height, sports experts agree that if Zhang keeps up her training, she has a bright future in basketball, but psychologists have warned that the height difference between her and the other kids her age could cause social issues, and asked that the girl be protected from bullying, for the full story have a look here.
