         2008年,年轻的赖俊瞳(英文名 Tony)首次出现在梅赛德斯-奔驰“明日之星”夏令营中。尽管年龄是最小的,但是来自上海的他在球场山却展现出了无与伦比的潜力,并且还是个开心果,走到哪里就把欢笑带到哪里。不出意外,托尼还将进军了梅赛德斯-奔驰“明日之星”的国际训练营。

在结束了初中的学业后,托尼又来到了美国的俄克拉荷马州继续读高中,在这儿他带领校队赢得了众多荣誉。每年夏天,托尼都会重返中国,来到“明日之星”训练营义务从事教练工作。而他的这一做法也激励了许多从“明日之星”项目走出的孩子追寻他的脚步,重返义务教球。

现在,所有梅赛德斯-奔驰“明日之星”的成员——中国网球协会、梅赛德斯-奔驰公司以及北京比格公司的代表,与赖俊彤的家人一起齐聚一堂,参加他的表彰仪式。赖俊彤的出色表现为所有的中国孩子树立了榜样,让他们明白回馈社会的责任和重要性,激励他们为他人付出。“总统志愿服务奖”由美国总统奥巴马颁发,赖俊彤实至名归。

干得漂亮,托尼!


It was back in 2008 that young Lai Juntong “Tony” made his first appearance at Mercedes-Benz “Swing for the Stars” Summer Camp. The youngster from Shanghai showed terrific potential on the court but also brought joy to everyone around him. Tony would earn his way to the Mercedes-Benz “Swing for the Stats” National & International Camps.

After completing middle school, Tony took on his next adventure traveling to Oklahoma (USA) for high school where he earned all-state honors captaining his high school team. Each summer he returned to China and his tennis roots donating his time as a volunteer coach for “Swing for the Stars”. His generosity has inspired many “SFS” children who have followed in his foot steps.

Now, all of the Mercedes-Benz ‘Swing for the Stars” family, China Tennis Association, Mercedes-Benz & Beijing International Group join in applauding Lai Juntong and his family on Tony’s recent recognition presented to him by the president of the United States, Barack Obama, in the form of the “President’s Volunteer Service Award”.  This outstanding honor is well deserved and serves as further inspiration and example to Chinese children across the country of the importance & responsibility to give back to the community.

Great job Tony!
