Photo of the Day: Shanghai’s Tallest Graduate


Our Photo of the Day series this week shares photos of graduations all around China.

July is graduation season for most universities in China. We’re going to kick start our week-long look at China’s trend for eye-catching graduation snaps with one of China’s most well-known athletes — Yao Ming. He retired from the NBA on July 2011. Fast forward 7 years and, just last week, Yao graduated from Shanghai Jiaotong University with an Economics degree, also (finally) fulfilling a promise he made with his parents when he was 17.
