      Camy in her Umpire Role

      Your Career


      How long have you been playing table tennis for, when and how did you start?

      I started playing Table Tennis when I was almost 7 years old in 1975 on and off but I'm still involved till this day. I began practice performance in Clubul Sportiv Municipal Buzau . My parents decided to put me in this sport because they don't want to see me playing on the street and worry about me !


      What has been the highlight of your table tennis career so far?

      When I won the " Silver Bat " because of my multiple sportswomen medals


      Who is your biggest rival out on the table tennis table?

      I do not have a specific rival in my career . The only thing that bothers me sometimes are the players with long pips !


      You have a number of different hats in table tennis, you are a player, a coach and an umpire. How fulfilling is that and how did you get involved with all of these?

      I love Table Tennis and nothing can make me give up no matter how hard some people around me try to make me give up !


      What do you think of the state of women's table tennis around the world?

      I wish from my heart to see the beautifulness , the feminity, the sexy women players around the world to use more often skirts , nice shirts more feminine with more curves . Making Table Tennis sexier like other sports example Tennis, Gymnastics or Figure Skating where the womens have long hair , nice make up and beautiful attractive clothes where lots of people want to see and enjoy ! I encourage every womens teams , Table Tennis Company's to support and promote the image and development of womens in Table Tennis !



      Camy in her Mum hat, we know where daughters Luoana and Cynthia get their dashing looks from I think!


      You are also a mother with two beautiful daughters who are both also players, what has been your favourite table tennis trip with the family so far?

      We just went on a trip to Lake Tahoe California with players and coaches from India, China, and Italy organzied by ICC Milpitas the ITTF hot spot in America where I coach for the last three months in the Summer Table Tennis Camp. We had a wonderful time with different cultures !


      What are your goals as a player, coach, umpire and mum for the near future?

      I will be focused more and more in the coaching field because I want in the future to see more and more good players coming from USA in top world ranking ! Like a mom I want my daughters to study and make their dreams come true !


      Off the Topic Questions

      Who’s your favourite sportsperson of all time?

      My favorite sportsperson was, is, and will be Jean-Michel Saive "The Fighter " because he is still showing me to never give up ,go forward no matter how old you are ,be nice ,funny and enjoy this sport . I will always have big respect for Jean -Mi !


      Favourite food?

      I love Sushi and Sashimi !


      What do you do when you aren't playing table tennis?

      I like to spend quality time with my family and friends , shopping with my daughters going to the gym and helping promote the Australian company ttEDGE that is directed by William Henzell which is also sponsoring us !


      Camy sporting a ttEdge shirt.
      See http://www.ttedge.com

      Dream Car?

      Red Ferrari


      Ideal holiday destination?

      I recommend Las Vegas because it's a unique place in the world with lots of fun and excitement !


      First thing you would do if you won $1million?

      Me and my daughters to have own sports fragrance .


      Your Team Mates

      Who trains the hardest in the training hall?

      Ariel Hsing and Lily Zhang they are juniors full of energy and with a lots of accomplished results !

      And Lastly

      Would you like to add one last tip, or an inspirational message for other table tennis players, coaches and/or umpires looking to succeed?

      Wow, thanks a lot for this interview Matt. I liked the answer to the 'rivals' question haha. She is the kind of people that want to promote female involvement in TT and that's very good!

      Thank you so much for this. The intervjues continues to have high class and are fun to read. I was a bit surprised when she said that she wanted more "sexy players" on the tour.=). I thought it was old men who said that.
