A new video is doing the rounds of Social Media and this time it's Sabine Winter with this very unorthodox training method! We have shared some crazy training techniques recently but this one takes the biscuit! Simply incredible, Sabine Winter plays a combination of backhands and forehands balancing on a tight rope!

Sabine's coordination is miraculous. And she probably played more backhand in this video than throughout a normal match. ;)

Start with the slackline alone.
Then proceed to juggling on the slackline like Sabine did. ;)

And always keep a smile on your face like she does. Great ambassador for fun in professional table tennis, wish we´d see more of her in our national team but the naturalized chinese players in Germany are just that small step ahead of her.

The full slack line TT video with nod to previous efforts and english commentary from the "off" (i.e. her dad).

It must be very difficult for her to accept Chinese players are representing Germany ahead of her? Is this normal process? Does Sabine play internationally for Germany?

Yes she is. And by just having become european champion at women's doubles she is pretty succesful, too, as i would say.

Well, i could elaborate about the value of having good practice partners and about treating them as humans and not like a person of little to no value, especially if they own a german passport!

Funny thing is, this kind of thinking and the argumentation only appears when it comes to german women's tabletennis, although we also have pretty good male chinese practice partners like Wang Xi, probably 'cause our women just aren't good enough.
But our male National Team members are playing much more succesful than our females, so this kind of discussion doesn't pop up when it comes to german male tabletennis.
So instead of finding excuses, the girls should rather invest their energy into more practice and practice harder instead of whining and complaining, which lead to nowhere IMHO...

Shan and Han are German, otherwise they wouldn´t play for Germany.

I see what you mean, and currently I think Romania is the only (successful) European country where players of Asian origin do not dominate
women´s table tennis.

But it doesn´t count where one comes from - if these players are better then they´ll play. Both are nine years older than Sabine, one of them is reportedly planning a family, Sabine is working for Olympia 2020 :)

And yeah, as European doubles champion for the second time I think she can already be quite satisfied with her achievements.
