Lang Ping as the daughter was born in the United States, she is her daughter's guardian, a logical to get a U.S. green card. there is a green card, but no American passport. Green Card is a permanent residence permit, a passport is proof of nationality. Lang Ping is not a U.S. citizen, only the right of abode.

Not true. In order to coach for the US team as she did, she needs to be a naturalised citizen.

So while China is justifiably proud of their volleyball team winning the gold in Rio 2016, their coach is in fact an American, and has been for years.

She is sometimes said to still be a Chinese citizen, but if she retains her Chinese passport, she would be violating the law. There's no indication at all that she would do so.

Some Chinese state that they consider themselves "Chinese", even if they have a foreign passport. Perhaps they do. But under Chinese and US law, neither country recognises dual nationality.

Many Chinese officials and high-profile celebrities have foreign passports, something that the Chinese government is often angry about and is at pains not to publicise. Many Chinese are stunned to find out that many of these families actually reside outside of China and are foreign passport holders. Added to that is the fact that many of China's athletes spend their time training overseas and are coached by foreign/non-Chinese coaches.
