Over the last few days, the table tennis team of Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) has been competing in the Guangdong University Student Table Tennis Championships in Shunde District, Foshan City. Through their hard work and efforts, the SUSTech team finished 3rd overall.

Sports Center Director Dong Lunhong led the team that was coached by He Zilin and Li Yanlong. The mixed doubles team of Han Yixiong & Zhang Keyin was the runner ups in their competition and Zhang Wei & Han Jianzheng came 3rd in the men’s doubles competition. Yang Zeyi & Ge Chengjie finished 8th in the men’s doubles competition, and with the other results from the three other competing students, the SUSTech team wound up on the podium. Coaches He Zilin and Li Yanlong were rewarded as excellent coaches.

The continued success of SUSTech sports teams is a reflection of the sporting culture within campus. The SUSTech table tennis team has more than 10 students that compete at high levels, with the team winning the Shenzhen City University Championship Table Tennis title in 2016 and 2017.
