I know that in addition to being President of the ITTF for the past 14 years, Adham has represented Canada in the Table Tennis community, in many different roles. Earning the trust of his colleagues once more is a tremendous accomplishment, and today’s re-election in Paris proves that the world of Table Tennis believes in the importance of Adham’s work and his dedication to the sport. We are all so very proud of you.”
