China News Service, Harbin, October 11 (Reporter Wang Nina) On the evening of October 10, the 2020 National Table Tennis Championships came to an end in Weihai, Shandong Province. Heilongjiang star Wang Manyu won two gold medals in mixed doubles and women's doubles and a bronze medal in women's singles.
With the theme of "battle", this championship kicked off on October 1. There were 28 teams across the country with nearly 300 participants. The Heilongjiang team sent a total of 11 athletes (5 men and 6 women) to participate in men's and women's teams, men's and women's singles, men's and women's doubles and mixed doubles. In addition to Wang Manyu's two golds and one bronze, the Heilongjiang team finished fifth in the men's and women's team and men's doubles.
This competition brought together all the top domestic players. It is not easy for Wang Manyu to break the siege and win two golds and one bronze. During the match, Wang Manyu wore a layer of bandage on her left knee. This injury also affected her performance in the game, especially in the women's singles semifinals. Wang Manyu lost to her with a 0-4 score. Women's doubles partner Chen Meng, unfortunately missed the final.
Although he was injured, Wang Manyu's performance in the game is still remarkable. Especially in doubles matches, she cooperated with her partner tacitly, and dealt with the key ball without rush or rash; when she fell behind, she could deal with it calmly, step forward and turn defeat into victory.
