From Yao Central
Barely a day after the wedding, Yao gets back to work doing what a celebrity athlete does, namely making public appearances and smiling for the cameras. Yao Ming Mania has your pics of the big man appearing at the 2008 Olympics one-year countdown celebration in Beijing (Andy Lau and Jackie Chan!) and at a Coca-Cola sponsored event with 110 meter world record-holding hurdler Liu Xiang. Meanwhile, both world-class Chinese athletes are angling to be the one who lights the 2008 opening ceremony's Olympic flame.
In unnecessary news, the China Daily reports that Yao and Ye Li have no current plans to have a baby. Reuters India quotes Yao:
"Having children...there's no plan at present. I will be concentrating on preparing for the NBA season and next year's Olympics," Yao said in comments published on official media portal Chinanews.com on Wednesday.
"To participate in the Olympics in your home country, it's an opportunity I will really cherish," Yao said.
