After the game, Guan Chenchen, wrapped in a down jacket, walked out of the arena wearing slippers, his steps were a little faltering, and he felt as if he had a foot injury. But when a reporter was concerned about the condition of her feet, Guan Chenchen, who had been smiling, frowned and pouted again: “Don’t ask this question, sister.” ”

The 21st is the Mid-Autumn Festival of the traditional Chinese festival, and Guan Chenchen also smiled at the reporter’s camera and “compared hearts”: “I wish everyone a happy Mid-Autumn Festival, and I want to eat mooncakes.” ”

A reporter suggested that Guan Chenchen do “kangaroo shaking hands” again to the camera, but she shook her head and refused, and did not tell everyone why she refused.
