Mo Zhang

Canada’s top-ranked female table tennis player, Mo Zhang has recently dominated her continental competitors, winning the singles title at the North American Championships in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2014, as well as at the North America Cup in 2014 and 2015. She was also victorious in the singles event at the 2011 Pan American Games, adding to the team silver she’d won at the multi-sport event four years earlier. In 2014 Zhang teamed with Anqi Luo to win doubles bronze at the Commonwealth Games. It was Canada’s third ever Commonwealth Games table tennis medal and first since 2002. Zhang was Canada’s lone female table tennis player qualified for London 2012, advancing one round further than she had in her Olympic debut at Beijing 2008. In her second Pan Am Games appearance at Toronto 2015, Zhang teamed with Luo and Alicia Cote to win team bronze. Zhang also competed in the singles event, placing fifth.
