Great inspiration

When I hear the news that Singapore's Table Tennis teams ( Feng Tianwei, Wang Yuegu and Sun Bei Bei ) beat world No 1 China 3-1 in the World Team Table Tennis Championships, I was overjoyed.
As you know China Table Tennis women team are always very strong that no other teams in the world can beat them for 19 year.
But Singapore women's team, ranked No 2 in the world finally beat them. Singapore had failed many times before that, for example they lost in the 2008 final and the Olympic final to the Chinese. Because of undaunted fighting spirits, Singapore finally become champion.
Just now I go to view the matches on Youtube, I can see how confident Singapore team.
Singapore's world No 2 Feng Tianwei, always want to be world no.1, her dream finally come true.
After the victory, the team manager said:" A lot of times, when we met them in the finals we lost 3-0, 3-1. But we kept telling them (Singapore players) that one day, we should be able to beat them....So, during the training, we kept drilling this into them - to have this mindset that we're able to beat them, because we felt that without Zhang Yining, it's one of the best chance to win them...A lot of times, some of them, when they meet China players, they tend to feel that there's a gap between them. If you watch today's match, you can see that Tianwei was even trailing in the first match. She was fighting for every point...That makes a difference, because....(in) Tianwei, you see the fighting spirit, and when she won the match, it really gave a lot of confidence to Yuegu going into the second match. She has also never beaten that China girl before..So I think that makes a lot of difference, because suddenly, they felt that, hey, the past doesn't count, that although we have lost so many, many matches, it's like a fresh start."
This successful story telling us that we can be success if we do our very best. How about get rid of our bad habits? The answer is we can if we want.

William-here in the US we call table tennis "ping-pong" and it's a game most kids play at some point and enjoy. It's also a wonderful metaphor for life, that ball constantly bouncing from one side of the table to the other. I've always admired how adept the Chinese are at this sport. I notice the Americans when they compete never really stand a chance of winning.

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

Ping pong has been under the armpit of China far too long. It's great to know that Singapore has beaten them and gained the no:1 spot. Congratulations.
