Nam-China conclude table tennis cup
In the continual effort to cement the diplomatic ties between Namibia and China, a table tennis tourney was held last weekend.
Three categories competed for trophies, medals and gifts on the final occasion. First up was the junior men (under 18) where Dietrich Möwes edged out Conwin van Wyk with 3-0 in the final. Möwes eliminated competition favourite Ronaldo Vogel in the semi-finals while van Wyk accounted for Delton Dreyer in the other semi-final. In the U-18 category, it was the two rivals, Kaitlyn Beukes and Reese Saunderson. The final between the two rivals was sensational and closely contested, whereby Saunderson had the upper hand against a determined Beukes. The final score of 3-2 is evidence of how tight it was. The men’s final was an all Chinese affair after Charles Cui Yunke eliminated Heiko Fleidl and Wang Yuking eliminated Ramon Hansen in the semi-finals. The two Chinese Nationals produced an excellent display of table tennis in the finals. Charles Cui Yunke eventually clinched the title with 3-1 against his compatriot.
