TABLE TENNIS LI JIAWEI RETIRES



Table tennis star Li Jiawei has brought the curtains down to her competitive career.

Li, 31, had represented Singapore since 1996, including at four Olympic Games where she won a silver and bronze medal in the women's team event at the 2008 Beijing and 2012 London Games respectively.The former world No 3 was also part of the team that pulled off a shock win over China to win the 2010 World Team Championship in Moscow.

"I am very grateful to the STTA and to Singapore for the opportunities they have given me and I hope to contribute back to the country in whatever I do in the future," said Li, who is currently 21st in the world rankings.

She would be retiring back in China with her family members and she said she never regretted coming to Singapore.

Also retiring is team-mate Sun Beibei, who was a reserve at the London Games.

The announcement was made by the Singapore Table Tennis Association at its headquarters in Toa Payoh earlier today.

Team-mate Sun Beibei also announced her retirement as a player, but will continue to serve as a youth coach for the students in the School Within A School programme at the Singapore Sports School.

But I guess parents would prefer their children to excel academically.

Agree. She will never get the opportunity to earn so much money if she was to stay in China as a table tennis player!
