Thailand's Tamolwan Khetkuen caught the eye of the Werner Schlager Academy in her first visit in 2009. As part of the WSA-on-week-tour in Lake Faak, Werner Schlager and the WSA trainers had no difficultly seeing the great talent hidden behind this young Thai woman.


They kept in touch.



Since May 2011 Tamolwan Khetkuen, a former member of the ITTF Hopes Team, with strong encouragement from her national association and the ITTF, again and again visited for several months the WSA in Schwechat.


And the results of this? Great progress! In May 2011, her ranking was 593 in the world ranking. Strikingly, in the March 2012 ITTF rankings she is 325.


Since benefiting from the Werner Schlager Academy training, she has moved up 269 positions. In addition, in the Cadet world rankings, this fun-loving guest has moved to number 7, with only players from China and Japan ahead of her . . .
