      Old Chinese Man playing table tennis

      You know when they say any old man you meet in China can likely beat your national table tennis champion?
      Well, here is Jin Ke, retired Admiral of the Chinese Navy




      Now have you guys noticed the Chinese Womens A team training in the background?
      This female player is Wang Xuan, a member of the Chinese Womens A Team

      Wow, thats all I can say! He is very good for an admiral, old man, he is just super good full stop! Am I right to assume short pimples? He has very steady defense

      He is beautiful to watch. That traditional penhold backhand that he has is awesome and his forehand is killer.
      Spin Everything.

      Nice. When i was in china i got beaten by the same type player. Old and wearing short shorts. He attacked with long pips traditional penhold. I thought how long can he keep up? Well not only the entire match he also took no breaks between points.

      Yeah, not often to see tradtional backhand smash like that, espeically with old school short pips

      He retired last year, and he said he will be playing table tennis for the rest of his life!!

      I did some research, he went through the TT school system and only joined the navy at age 18.
      But that is like 40 odd years ago, so he had good foundation, he did represent the navy in many club tournaments
      But to remain fit at age 60+, sure is a rare situation.

      Not to mention playing against a player that can be easily ranked in the womens top 50 in the world (if given the oppurtunity).
      Heard from mates that he visited Northern California and also gave a lot of people some beatings there.

      A lot of the people I regularly play are this sort of age ( so am I , come to that ) and most of the time it's like a lumberjack competition - chop,chop,chop bloody chop !! Nice to see an older player who doesn't think topspin is the invention of the devil.
      Second/spare blade: Joola K7 with Tibhar Evolution MX-P (forehand) and MX-S (backhand)

      I asked the mate in Northern California

      Jin Ke is a solid USATT 2400 level.
      At the top clubs in SF, only 2 juniors was able to beat him
      And agree, his level and age by attacking is a huge wow

      He is truly amazing. At 60+ to be playing like that is awesome.
