The Mystery Man
By Coach Samson Dubina
 
 
In the table tennis world, it is commonly believed that there are 3 types of players – positive, negative, and in-between.
 
Mr. Positive continues to strongly affirm himself throughout the match, even if he is down 8-0 or 10-2 or whatever the score, he has a high level of confidence.

The Sri Lanka Men's Singles Champion has been training here at the Samson Dubina Table Tennis Academy for the past 3 months!  He has been making amazing progress!  For the last two weeks, he has been undefeated at the strongest league in the midwest (The Paddle Palace Ohio League).  His amazing performance has boosted his league ranking and he is now ranked #1 in Ohio at 2619!  We are so proud of his daily efforts, great attitude, and persistence at reaching for the top!
