Table tennis player Koen Pang has become the first Singaporean to be ranked the world’s No. 1 Under 18 paddler.
This comes after the International Table Tennis Federation updated the current Under 18 world ranking list, the Singapore Table Tennis Association said in a statement on Friday (31 August).
Koen, 17, said, “I am very happy that I am able to achieve this target. It's a milestone and I'm really grateful for the support given to me by Singapore Table Tennis Association, Sports SG, Singapore Sports Institute and Singapore Sports School. I hope this will spur the younger players to believe that with hard work and perseverance, all things are possible!’’
