We're back with news of China's Olympians and after returning from Rio, a 64 person delegation including 42 gold medalists was immediately sent out for a three-day tour of Hong Kong. Following that, the group headed to Macao where they have been since Monday to give the locals a chance to see the athletes perform in person and maybe get some autographs.

The delegation boasts such stars as diving champion Wu Minxia, badminton legend Lin Dan, world record holding swimmer Sun Yang, and coaches from different disciplines. At Tap Siac Stadium, the Olympians played some fun games with kids to help encourage them to become interested in sports. The activities stressed teamwork and provided a chance to interact with the athletes.

Following that, Ma Long and Ding Ning teamed up with other kids to play some doubles table tennis players with Ma offering some hands on instruction.

Then things get a bit silly when Zhang Jike and Xu Xin take on Li Xiaoxia and Liu Shiwen using an oversized ball. Probably not going to catch on as a new version of the game, but the crowd certainly enjoys it.

Next is badminton as Chen Long and Lin Dan face off on opposite sides with some lucky kids. They too would try playing with a giant shuttlecock that seems to have Chen fearing for his racket after a serve.

The women's volleyball players also provide some tips on technique before a fun game.

The Olympians would visit six different communities to speak with locals and display their skills on Wednesday. The champions also stop by a special education school to meet some more fans.
