I also thought that countries like France are catching up on the juniors field, but looking at the last WJTTC they weren't even close. Koki Niwa is still the only real threat.
On the other hand the "getting more countries involved" he's talking about did work; A huge amount of different countries at the WTTC and even some talents like Noshad Alamiyan.

The sport can be promoted by a country through influence from an individual player that has recently won or topped a tournament.
e.g. Timo Boll topping with the Chinese, this might influence some young German players to try harder to one day become someone like Timo Boll.

Are you trying to prove that Chinese people are not going down?
I believe that too, they train the longest out of every country.

atm i think the only threats to the chinese on the junior field are the Japanese. Muramatsu, machi sakai....they did fairly well at the wjttc, and if you take into account defenders tend to hit peaks later in their careers, much can be expected from yuto.

also we forget players like kim min seok and seo hyun deok who are great talents....



on the womens side the chinese are unexplainably stronger than every other country. i dont know why, i think it is because they innovate with the womens game rather than copy old styles, and so they always advance.

maybe in the future the women will catch up, but it will take longer than the men- there are no women on the world scene currently who aren't of chinese origin that i see as a realistic threat to the chinese.

Yea, Yuto seems like he just needs some more experience and skills, then he will become unstoppable.

Don't think he'll be anywhere near unstoppable even at his prime. Korea has a bright future with Kim Min Seok, Seo Hyun Deok, and Jung Youngsik.

Not unstoppable, the word should be strong.

I've been watching this video for almost five years once a year now and I still have one question. Why?
