Eugene Wang

Canada’s current top-ranked table tennis player, Eugene Wang achieved a career-high of 58th in the ITTF World Ranking list in November 2014. He had a strong season in 2013, including a tournament victory at the US Open Americas Challenge Series, which qualified him for the ITTF World Tour Grand Finals in Dubai. Another highlight came in 2012 when he advanced to the quarterfinals of the World Tour’s Slovenian Open but lost to Olympic gold medallist Ma Long. Wang has set a career goal of breaking into the top 30 in the world ranking. Wang made his Olympic debut at London 2012, having received his Canadian citizenship just in time for the table tennis team announcement on June 5.
