17 WSA-players at the World Championships



From 13 – 20 May the (table tennis) world is looking to Paris-Bercy.

Ten years after the legendary World Championships singles gold by Werner Schlager the World Table Tennis Championships take place again at the same location.

It will be the largest Table Tennis World Championships of all times.

The ITTF with 218 member nations is the second largest sports federation in the world, athletes from 159 countries managed in-country qualification for Paris, where one expects a sold-out hall for almost all competition days.

With 23 players China has as expected once again the largest (and most promising) contingent. As reported, the Chinese national team makes the immediate preparation for the World Championships already for the third time in a row in the Werner Schlager Academy in Schwechat.

Japan comes with the second-largest contingent (16 players), top nations such as Korea (14) Germany (12) or host nation France (14) also compete in impressive strength in Paris.

But the second largest contingent at the World Championships is. . .
. . . the Werner Schlager Academy.

No fewer than 17 players from 11 countries from the (inter)national WSA training group will participate in this record-breaking World Championships. An impressive performance by the Werner Schlager Academy, which is completed with the presence of WSA-Star coaches Richard Prause, Mario Amizic and Aya Umemura.

The WSA players in Paris:
Werner Schlager, Chen Weixing, Robert Gardos, Daniel Habesohn, Stefan Fegerl, Feng Xiaoquan (all Austria), Marcos Freitas, Joao Monteiro (both Portugal), Mihai Bobocica (Italy), Matiss Burgis (Latvia), Stanislav Golovanov (Bulgaria) Samuel Novota (Slovakia), Daniela Dodean (Romania), Tamolwan Khetkuen (Thailand), Rachel Aschwanden (Switzerland), Sarah de Nutte (Luxembourg), Andrea Todorovic (Serbia).
