Olympic veterans Zhang and Wang will return to Rio for table tennis
A pair of Olympians will return to the Games this summer in Rio, after Table Tennis Canada announced its Olympic nominations on Wednesday.
Table tennis competition will run through the first 11 days of the Games, from August 6 to 17 at Riocentro, an exhibition centre located roughly six kilometres from the Olympic Park in Barra.
Canada has yet to win an Olympic medal in table tennis. The best all-time singles result for Team Canada arrived via Johnny Huang at Atlanta 1996 when he was fifth in men’s singles reaching the quarterfinals.
