What led to diplomatic relations between China and the United States more than 50 years ago? A game-changing ping-pong exchange in 1971. This historic event played a pivotal role in normalizing diplomatic relations between the two nations in 1979. Stephen Mull, leader of the University of Virginia course "Game Change: Bridging the U.S.-China Divide Through Sports," believes in the power of revisiting this legacy to foster connections between the youth of both countries. With optimism, he anticipates that after a challenging period, China-U.S. relations are now moving in a positive direction.
