Controversy

Rumours were rife in 2010 when Guo Yue was cited for "poor behaviour" and lack of interest in playing table tennis. An incident, cited on Chinese forum Tianya, stated that she was once tasked to attend a meeting and failed to do so, hence causing friction with China's top player Wang Nan. After the London 2012 Olympics, she was switched to a provincial team. In 2015, she was officially kicked out from the National Team and has gone on to study finance at Tsinghua University.
