It's been more than a month since the London Olympics' torch extinguished, but those dream-realizing winning moments are still vivid and inspiring in the memory of every Chinese all over the world. Among all those champions, the Male Foil Gold Medalist Lei Sheng, who is named "Scholar Swordsman" by Chinese press and his fans, get extremely popular and particularly loved by the Chinese public because of his diligence, humbleness and intelligence.
As the sponsor for the Chinese Male Foil Fencing Team, iTalk invited the new Olympic Champion Lei Sheng and his coach – a two time Olympics silver medalist Wang Haibin, to US and meet with iTalk’s customers. On the sunny afternoon of September 26th , the meet-up event opened its curtain at Hyatt Regency Hotel Bethesda.
Minister Yang Zigang from the China Embassy warmly congratulated Lei Sheng and Wang Haibin for their wonderful performance in the London Olympic Games, and praised iTalkBB’s continuous effort in corporate responsibility. ITalkBB CEO Jack Zhao explained the spirit of this endorsement in his speech. From his point of view, Chinese fencers making such great progress in the sports that was originally dominated by European players is very similar to oversea Chinese fighting for life and future in foreign lands. And this spirit is very similar to iTalk’s ambition to become the lead of the global VOIP industry. In Wang Haibin’s speech, he shared his experience in sports education and the advantages for practicing fencing with the parents at the event. Lei Sheng talked about his life and some interesting anecdotes about study and practice, which drew loud applause.
After the VIP speeches, Mr. Zhao presented Lei Sheng the “iTalk Brand Ambassador” plaque, wishing Lei Sheng, along with his virtues and personality could be a role model for Chinese children and teens in America, encouraging them achieving their goals.

In the “Learn how to fence from Lei Sheng” fencing instruction session, Lei Sheng taught his little students carefully and patiently how to correctly grab the sword, how to stab and how to salute the opponent. He gave them individual advice one by one, correcting their positions and encouraging them. He also answered several questions raised by the children.
