Tang Wei ? No wonder this name sounds familiar. You must be her secret admirer to open a thread for her when she isn't a professional player.

well, she is "国家二级羽毛球运动员的水平".. and she was a part-time coach/trainer in England.
does that make her a professional player?

Well, actually she said in the interview that she qualified as second grade on the national level in badminton. That absolutely does not mean she is in the second national team (国家二队). I suppose like in swimming or karate or other sports there are rankings to recognize your level, and she did pass the second one.
In england she did not coach but did some sparing at a club. I am sure with her looks she got more people to the club!

After reading the whole article, I admit my opinion of her changes much for the better.

Also, she's a famous actress that worked in a blockbuster movie. Why does she need to coach in badminton to make money to support herself? Shouldn't she have millions already?

Let me clarify this:
In China, athletes are classified into 5 levels:
1) world - class master: World top 3 (team players in Thomas cup, Uber Cup, Sudirman cup, individuals in Olympics and World championships)
2) master: all players: in Thomas cup, Uber Cup, Sudirman cup;and Olympics and World championships. Top 4 for national games (junior level included)
3) level 1 athlete: top 16 in national games (team and individuals).
4) level 2 athlete: top 16 in provincial and city games (team and individuals)..
5) level 3 athlete: top 16 in county games (team and individuals)..
Be aware of that none of the super series or super series premier counts!
All these titles are valid for only 3 years. Tang Wei was once a level 2 athlete which means she's a competitor at province or city level.
Tang Wei's wages for different jobs:
First job: Movie "luster, caution" actress #1, winner for the best actress at Golden horse awards, winner for the best rising star at British academy film awards. Only got $80,000
2nd job: $1,000,000 for a Chinese TV commercial ads. She returned 83% back.
then prosecuted for staring in Movie "luster, caution", she fled to UK, began to coach badminton:
art performance on streets in UK (like a beggar): ₤26.55/2 hours
badminton coach in UK: ₤60/hour, got ₤900 a week.
fashion model in UK: ₤20,000 a week.
then moved to Hong Kong ...
check all the jobs of Tang Wei, a badminton coach is paid only better than a beggar.
