Peng met IOC-Bach for dinner: – Had a nice conversation

Peng himself confirms the meeting with Bach in an interview with the French newspaper The Team. The head of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) is in China in connection with the country currently hosting the Winter Olympics.

– We had dinner together on Saturday, and we had a nice conversation, she says.

The 36-year-old adds that she has decided to end her tennis career.

This is the first time that Peng has spoken to the international press after the “disappearance case” in November. For several weeks, she was not seen in public after accusing a former top Chinese politician of sexually abusing her for several years.

Later, Peng stood up and withdrew the accusations. She thought she was misunderstood.

The women’s tennis organization WTA is still concerned about her situation, and no one from there has been in direct contact with her since last autumn.

Even before the Olympics, the IOC team announced that Bach would meet Peng in person during the games.
