      European penhold player ?

      In my memory, TT players from Europe, America or Africa (Non-Asian player) all are shakehand player, but I found a picture the player seems is from Spain, but to my surprise he is a penholder ! After Google I know his name is Jesús Cantero, Spainish TT player. Interesting !

      I had a question here: Are there other penhold player in Europe / America ? And for amateur, does somebody are penholder ?

      When I saw the title, I thought of a Chinese European but I was wrong.
      Impressive, he's even sponsored by Double Happiness.

      There are some other European/American Penhold players, I don't remember their names though.
      Gonna try find them again.

      It'll be more awesome if more European ppl took up penhold. Look at this guy who is generating amazing power on both BH and FH...



      His strokes look so awesome, if it wasn't for the face I would have thought that it was Wang Hao playing...
      Technique is at least 10 times more important than the equipment. When have you seen people giving credit to the shoes when a runner wins?

      I think there are quite some pen players in europe! Just that they do not compete on the highest league.
      I know of Ding Yi (if you count him) who played very well in his best time and still kicks ass in austrias highest league!
      There are quite some penhold players (european with no chinese origins) in many viennese tt-leagues

      If there are more penhold coach in Europe, I think more European player will took up penhold

      --European and American eat with forks and knives, so they like shakehand. while Chinese eat with chopsticks, so they like penhold especially for amateur.

      After Baidu, Kalinic is considered to be the best European penholder in China, he was a giant !
