Ning Zetao 宁泽涛 ‘Baozi 包子’

Chinese swimmer Ning Zetao (宁泽涛) is affectionately known as Baozi (包子), which translates to ‘steamed bun’.

Ning was given the nickname when he joined the Navy swimming team because of his cute cheeks and also because of his love of eating Chinese steamed buns.

In an interview he explained that he liked the nickname because “I think that baozi are very innate. The skin is just the outside appearance, what’s on the inside is the best part (like inner beauty)”
