This video is super unique! Tencent Sports storm into Ma Long's bedroom at the Chinese National Team Training Center in Beijing when he was packing for the recent China Trials (Marvellous 12) for the 2017 World Championships!

The video below you can see Ma Long is pretty stressed trying to pack his things but gives a lot of cool answers and responses in the translation in the video. The Tencent interviewers take a look in Ma Long's bedroom and lots more!

Check out Ma Long's shoes, blades, rubbers, foam roller fan gifts and lots more. Also see which book Ma Long is currently reading and what snacks he brought to Qatar Open but did not have a chance to eat.

Wow - I got some chilli heatwave doritos from tesco this week. Coincidence, or national grade snack of champions? You decide.

this is so cool. It's hard not to love him. He's cool, but shy. how does everyone in china go nuts over ZJ but not him?! I know he's the best rn but I can't help it. Not only potentially the greatest of all time, but also the kind of guy you'd want to have around. Also love how Xu Xin's name means humble, yet he's waaaaay more cocky than FZD or ML. same with FB. FB, ZJ and XX are definitely the cool guys on CNT's first team, but FZD and ML are quite a bit ahead imo. personality goes a long way in tt.

You can see Ma Longs blade has no design on the surface. Also those white boxes are his rubbers I think?

Was about to comment on the same thing, red boxes in the corner seem to be blades,
and rubbers in the suitcase all seem to be vacuum packed.
There were few arguments on the forums recently about national grade (personal CNT) DHS stuff,
this video makes things much more clear, sadly seems all of those "reputable" sellers selling fake stuff....

Phhhhh.
Strange conclusion IMHO. But if you don't trust forum sellers then don't buy from them. Simple as that.
You can also get DHS National gear from an official DHS Vendor like
www.yoger.com.cn
They also sell National rubbers and other things and are official DHS shop.
But if you do that, you'll probably next gonna find out that the stuff www.yoger.com.cn sells is actually pretty much the same as the gear sold by a well reputated forum member!

Don't mistake that you're not Ma Long and that you also don't receive your rubbers the way like he does!

He seems like a really cool guy and it's pretty cool all CNT members seem to be quite different in terms of personality, yet they're still so good at the sport. It's nice to appreciate the different nuances of all of the players, I think it's more fun that way than if all of them were exactly the same.

He is bringing his own DHS thickness/flatness device. Ma Long is smart. Be like Ma Long :)

I don't see any vacuum packaging in there?
I see 3 bulk pack (white square boxes) of rubbers. Each box would have 10 rubbers.
Ma Long taking 1 box and putting it in his bag.
That blade is likely a spare blade,with his 2 main blades in his other bag
10 rubbers would be 3 days use, if he changes 1 rubber per blade/side and has 3 blades, so using 3 rubbers per day.
During tournaments, they use a fresh sheet every day

I find my rubbers are beast in their 2nd, 3rd week of use. New rubber per day is madness!?

It is different rubbers :p
My Chinese Taipei friends change Tenergy every 2nd day, or 3rd day max
The juniors (not yet sponsored by the brands) would change every week.

One question I have is
Ma long moved 30 rubbers (3 boxes) from his bedroom, to what I think is his bathroom
Then moved 10 rubbers to his suitcase

Question - why is the 20 rubbers in the bathroom????
