WSA goes Olympia

15.08.2014

Werner Schlager Academy participates with a real strong „team“ in the Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing (China). Six players who practice regularly at WSA will fight from August 17th till August 28th 2014 for the desirable Olympic medals in the Chinese metropolis.

 

Austria:

Karoline Mischek (Flötzersteig Wien) and Andreas Levenko (BAC Baden) represent Austria in Nanjing. Levenko (his father is coach at WSA) is full time table tennis player. Mischek is the best Austrian born player in Nanjing.

 

Venezuela:

Gremlis Arvelo is part of the Venezuelan training group that live most of the time in Austria and has practiced at WSA continuously since 2012 when the successful cooperation between WSA and the Venezuelan table tennis association has started.

 

Kazakhstan:

Also Kirill Gerassimenko has lived and practiced at WSA for several years. In the new table tennis season he will play in the second Austrian division together with Levenko at BAC Baden. He is said to be one of the most promising table tennis talents outside China and Japan.

 

Thailand:

Tamolwan Khetkuen is a “WSA-baby”. She was discovered at WSA in 2009 and from that day on WSA, ITTF and her supplier Butterfly accompanied her development. Khetkuen has lived for several years in Schwechat and is part of the successful Europe Cup winner SVNÖ Ströck.

 

Croatia:

Lea Rakovac, one of the most promising European players in women’s table tennis, has moved to Schwechat in the late summer 2014. She will – together with Khetkuen and other players – play for the Austrian SVNÖ Ströck in the new season 2014/2015.

  

All in all 32 boys and 32 girls participate in table tennis at the Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing (China). Great favourites for the gold medals are – like in the Olympic Games, too – the stars from China, especially Fan Zhedong who is already no. 3 in the Men’s ITTF World Ranking. In this position he has already overrun the last Olympic Winner and World Champion Zhang Jike as well as the German superstars Timo Boll and Dmitrij Ovtcharov.
