Biography

Jiao Zhimin is the mother of An Byeong-Hun, a golf prodigy who won the 2009 US Amateur Golf Championship at Southern Hills CC in Tulsa, at the age of only 17-years-old, making him the youngest ever winner of this event, surpassing the record of Danny Lee, from New Zealand, who had bettered the record set by Tiger Woods, who was only 18 when he won his first US Amateur in 1994. In 2005, Jiao's husband, Korean Olympic table tennis medalist An Jae-Hyeong moved to the United States with Byeong-Hun, allowing him to train at the David Leadbetter Academy in Bradenton, Florida, while she stayed back in China and took a corporate job to pay the bills. Jiao was a bronze medalist in women’s doubles at the 1985 and 1987 World Championships. She and An Jae-Hyeong married in 1989 in Sweden, three years before their countries formed diplomatic ties. Jiao Zhimin also hosts a sports talk show on Chinese television.
