A LITTLE MORE ABOIT MARKO
Getting into the Sport: Started playing table tennis at age 10… Liked that it was an individual sport, but it was after competing at the Quebec Games that he really got the competitive bug… Odds and Ends: Role model is Olympic gold medallist Ma Long … Favourite motto: “Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion”…
