GUO Yue (CHN) beat LI Jiawei (SIN) in a 4-2 match at about 2020 hours earlier today.
Local table tennis star Li Jiawei finished fourth place in the Table Tennis Women’s Singles at the Beijng Olympic Games 2008. The Singapore paddler, who is ranked sixth in the world as of August 2008, achieved her personal best at the Athens 2004 Olympic Games, where she also finished fourth in the singles.
Even though our hopes in securing the second medal of the year for Singapore have been crushed, our GOLDEN girl fought hard during the 53-minute battle. Her performance was commendable and let’s not forget how she has placed Singapore table tennis on the world map during the last few years.
APPLAUSE PLEASE PEOPLE!
