Big success for WSA in Tokyo



China's table tennis aces (again) left their mark at the World Team Championships in Tokyo: first the Chinese men could beat Germany 3-1 in the final and then the women from the Middle Kingdom completed the double gold.


But also the Werner Schlager Academy is one of the big winners of the Championships in Japan. Many players of our (inter)national training group have provided over long passages great performances.

- Austria men's team - entirely stationed in the WSA - only twice (first round and quarterfinals) had to abandon the field against China and reached rank 5 with the squad Robert Gardos, Chen Weixing, Stefan Fegerl and Daniel and Dominik Habesohn, demonstrating once more that they belong to the best table tennis nations in the world.


- Portugal's men's team with the WSA cracks Marcos Freitas and Joao Monteiro suffered a similar "fate" as Austria. Twice (preliminaries and quarter-finals) they crashed on host Japan: another place 5 and a further step to the top nations in the world.

- Daniela Dodean Monteiro (SVS STRÖCK), WSA-player of the first hour played - although due to knee problems limited considerably in her training work in recent months - a great World Cup and led Romania (after a sensational victory in the second round versus Korea) to the quarterfinals. Dodean beat in Tokyo, among others, also Austria's number 1 Liu Jia.

- Tetyana Bilenko (SVS STRÖCK) also surpassed herself with her ​​Ukrainian team and finally finished on place 9. Bilenko prevailed during the title fights, among others, over the world ranking 14th Lee Ho Ching from Hong Kong sensational with 3-0.

- In the "WSA stable duel" England (Daniel Reed) against Italy (Mihai Bobocica, who remained unbeaten in the entire World Cup) the men from the UK were able to prevail 3-1 and reached the Championship Division. Due to the placement the ascent however also was possible for Italy.

- Sarah de Nutte (Luxembourg) and Andrea Todorovic (Serbia) lead their nations to the shared 17th place which is a big success for the young players.

- Kirill Gerasimenko (Kazakhstan), Alex Galic (Slovenia) and WSA "Baby" and SVS Ströck player Tamolwan Khetkuen (Thailand) could celebrate important achievements and thus lead their countries to good positions.
