South Korean quartet headline table tennis champs

When four young South Korean table tennis players walked into Dunedin’s Edgar Centre yesterday and started smashing high-speed ping-pong balls across every square inch of court, most of the other players in the room either fumbled their shots, or just stopped and stared.

Huicheol Bae, Inhyeok Choi, Yechan Yang and Gihun Lee are used to it.

They are well recognised, especially in Asia, because they are ranked among the top 50 professional table tennis players in South Korea.
