Fu is definitely the biggest surprise for the mainland Olympic delegation. The bronze medalist became an internet sensation after her amusing interviews and exaggerated facial expressions went viral on China's social media. Her candid and appealing personality has endeared her to web users worldwide.

During her interview with Hong Kong media ahead of the visit, Fu said, "I really want to visit Hong Kong, I want to enjoy the delicious food there and go to Disneyland."

All the members of the mainland women's volleyball team, as well as coach Lang Pang, are undoubtedly the most popular team among the visiting delegation.

Fans in Hong Kong are very excited at the opportunity to meet the members of the women's volleyball team.

Hong Kong's newspaper Ta Kung Pao commented in a report that, "the optimism, stability as well as the enterprising spirit of the girls from women's volleyball will never be out of date. Besides that, the new volleyball team also has elements of fashion and youth. How could Hong Kong fans not love them?"

Every place has its own story related to the Olympic Games and Hong Kong is no exception. In 2008, the city was part of the Beijing Olympics, with the equestrian events being held in Hong Kong.
