Olympic Dreams - On shoot with table tennis stars

Sheffield's English Institute of Sport

Eyes on the prize
A top 20 table tennis world ranking or success in the European or world qualifying tournaments will be needed to make the Olympics.

Paul Drinkhall is the highest ranked Brit (234th) and is still a possibility for Beijing. But eyes and bats are more focused on London 2012.

The Europe Youth Top 10 is an annual round robin tournament featuring 40 male and females (U-16 cadets and U-18 juniors).

With players from the same country facing each other in the opening round, we would soon find out the form of the British players with a Drinkhall-Knight showdown.
