My Career

Dear Table Tennis Community,
Thanks so much for supporting my table tennis playing career through my gofundme account.  Training for the Olympic trials was a great experience and I learned much along the way.  Now that the Olympic trials is over, I'm going to continue full-time in table tennis coaching, promoting the sport, as well as competing.  Today, I just won the Erie PA Open coming back from down 0-2 in games and down match point in the 4th.  I'm excited to continue playing tournaments this year in preparation for the US Nationals in July.

The Newgy Ohio Open concluded with California's Dan Liu taking top honors and $1400 by winning both the u2600 and Open events with 20 consecutive wins! With groups of 8 players in every event and 4 advancing from each group, most players were able to play 15-25 matches over the course of the weekend. I would like to personally congratulate all the winners.
