Former world table tennis champion Liu Wei has collected a PHD from Peking University.

46-year-old Liu Wei was conferred with her degree at a graduation ceremony on Wednesday.

The associate professor at the school received the degree after her dissertation and oral presentation were unanimously approved by the academic committee.

She studied at Peking University's law school as an undergraduate from 1999 to 2003, having declined an offer to be a top sports administrator in her home province Shandong.

Liu Wei won the world table tennis championships 7 times before retiring in 1996.

She also won 3 straight world mixed doubles titles with her partner, Wang Tao, head of the Chinese military table tennis team.
