This link provides a fantastic documentary how Sweden defeated China in 1989. April 4th 1989 the Swedish men's team defeated China! It took ten long years for Mikael Appelgren, Jörgen Persson and Jan-Ove Waldner to achieve such feat. The clip provides interviews and rare clips of these legendary players. Any translators please help us with some parts of the video :)

If the desire and passion is their for the game, and you become into the zone with a great feeling, everything is possible!

Hi,We were there , if you check out the vid we are the crowd with the blow up inflatable skeleton, fried egg, duck, gorilla and banana...going crazy..about 10 seconds into the clip..
One of the greatest sporting events ever.It had everything.
Apple defeating the legend jiang from 14-14 in the 3rd when you think the mighty chinese would come good.Waldner lobbing off teng 21-18 in the 3rd, persson beating chen from 1-0 down.Then jiang being faulted v waldner for which on replay was a legal serve, refusing to play on, telling the ref to bog off, until the umpires were changed..then losing another very close game to waldi..
Final game apple defeating a disconsolate chen 2-0 ...incrediblke scenes and still the best event ive attended... ever...
