Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai had a video call with IOC President Bach on Sunday.

Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai had a video call with officials of the International Olympic Committee on Sunday (November 21). She said she was safe. This is the first time she has spoken to the outside world publicly after “disappearing” in a few weeks.

But some people in the sports industry and observers questioned the call, which did not disclose the details. Global Athlete, a sports rights organization, criticized the IOC’s so-called “if nothing” attitude in the Peng Shuai incident, and accused him of “abominable indifference” to sexual violence and the well-being of female athletes.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) stated in a statement that Chairman Thomas Bach had a 30-minute conversation with Peng Shuai.

Also participating in the video call were Emma Terho, Chairman of the IOC Athletes Committee, and Li Lingwei, a Chinese member of the IOC and Vice Chairman of the Chinese Olympic Committee.
