    Hi Zhenyu, I thought your article on tapping China's next goldmine - the sport industry was a very interesting read which lead me to the idea to write a white paper on the economic potential and growth of the sports industry in which I am also investigating the impacts of the 2010 government released Guiding Opinion. As your article inspired me to write this paper and you are a well-sought writer of sport topics, I would kindly ask you for the opportunity to interview you on the basis of your research. We could arrange this over the phone, skype or via email, which ever one suits you the best. I am looking forward to your response. my email address is lw@chinaperformancegroup.com
