National Table Tennis Team prepares for the World Table Tennis Championships for the first time overseas
After the German Open, the men ‘s and women ‘s team captains Ma Long and Ding Ning led the National Table Tennis Team to conduct overseas training in Qatar. This version of the picture / Osports According to the original plan, the Chinese table tennis team should now train in Lingshui, Hainan to prepare for the Asian Cup at the end of this month and the World Cup in Busan next month.However, affected by the new crown pneumonia epidemic, the National Table Tennis Team did not return to China after participating in the German Open, but instead transferred to Doha, Qatar for training. This is the first time that the National Table Tennis Team has prepared for the World Table Tennis Championships overseas.On March 11, the National Table Tennis Team will go to Busan, South Korea to practice with the South Korean team for a week.    Plan B Doha training camp feels warmth on January 26, the second day of the New Year, the National Table Tennis Team left Beijing to participate in the ITTF German Open.In the end, the National Table Tennis Team won 4 gold and 3 silver at the German Open, and only lost 1 gold in the men’s doubles event.  According to the tactical plan of the National Table Tennis Team, after the German Open on February 2nd, he will return to China for training in Lingshui, Hainan to prepare for the Asian Cup at the end of February and the World Cup in Busan at the end of March.  With the development of the epidemic, many countries have strengthened immigration management measures, which has disrupted the preparation plans of many Chinese national teams participating overseas.The General Administration of Sport of China has also adopted various measures, requiring that closed monitoring measures for all sports teams be strengthened to ensure the training of the sports teams, the safety of the living environment, and that the preparations for the Tokyo Olympics will not be affected.  In view of this, the Chinese figure skating team went straight to Canada for training in South Korea after participating in the four continents championship, preparing for the Montreal World Championship next month.The Chinese women’s basketball team also stayed in Belgrade for training after participating in the Tokyo Olympic qualifiers.After participating in the German Open, the National Table Tennis Team went directly to Doha, Qatar for training.  Liu Guoliang, President of the China Table Tennis Association, introduced that the ITTF President Thomas Victor represented the German Table Tennis Association, as well as the Austrian Table Tennis Association, expressing their intention to welcome the Chinese team to the training, and the Japan Table Tennis Association also sent letters to condolences.In the end, the National Table Tennis team chose Doha, mainly because of the Qatar Open on March 3, where the Chinese team prepared for the Busan World Table Tennis Championships at the end of March.  After knowing that the Chinese team decided to come to the training camp, the Qatar Table Tennis Association was ready in just one day.The National Table Tennis Team is scheduled to train in the Asper Stadium, where it will also be the Doha Asian Games Badminton Stadium.Qatar has prepared 15 tables for the National Table Tennis Team, as well as the best physical fitness, rehabilitation training facilities and medical equipment.  ”I didn’t expect them to prepare everything in such a short time.The Chinese team’s training table is the one to be used in the Qatar Open. Qatar Ping Pong will take all the 2,000 table tennis balls in stock to the Chinese team for training. They are very warm.When visiting the National Table Tennis Team training on February 10th, Steve Denton, CEO of ITTF, thanked the Qatar Table Tennis Association for their work.  The 37 generals of the team are preparing for the World Table Tennis Championships. On February 4, the China Table Tennis Association issued an announcement announcing the postponement of the Asian Cup in Wenchang, Hainan, on February 28, and canceling all games before April.In essence, the National Table Tennis Team canceled the training plan for the Busan World Table Tennis Championships in Lingshui, Hainan.  Next, the National Table Tennis Team will conduct a one-month training in Doha, Qatar. This is the first time in the history of the National Table Tennis Team to prepare for the World Table Tennis Championships overseas.While the main team of the National Table Tennis Team was training in Doha, another part of the National Table Tennis Team left Beijing to go to Hebei Zhengding National Team Base for training.  When he went to the German Open at the end of January, the National Table Tennis Team had always expected that he would not be able to return to China for training on schedule, nor had he brought the corresponding training materials.After temporarily changing to Doha for training, even Qatar table tennis provided 15 tables and 2,000 table tennis balls, but the shortage of rubber, glue and other consumables will also affect preparations.  Judging from the previous training sessions of the next World Table Tennis Championships, the training scale of the National Table Tennis Team exceeded 60 to 70 people.In addition to the first- and second-line main players, there are also multiple training team members participating in the training together.This time, only 29 players from Germany participated in the training in Doha. A number of special training partners were not in the team.In addition, there were only 8 coaches who went to Doha with the national table tennis team this time. Many physical, scientific, and logistics team members were absent, which somewhat affected the preparation of the national table tennis team.However, Li Fang, the head coach of female table tennis, said that apart from a slight shortage of manpower, the training in Doha is not much different from that in China.  The impact on the national table tennis team members, training venues and environment changes is not great, male table tennis captain Ma Long said professional athletes have the ability to deal with all things.According to Qin Zhijian, the head coach of the men ‘s team, the national table tennis team came to Doha during the period of recovery, focusing on physical fitness and doubles training, and then targeted training for the main opponents. “Our ultimate goal is the Tokyo Olympics.Strengthen mixed doubles training, including team communication, coaching and matching will make targeted arrangements.”Qatar Table Tennis Association Chairman Karil Almohanadi is also the first vice president of ITTF, he said he would give the Chinese team the help he could.During the German Open, Liu Shiwen suffered an accidental elbow injury.After coming to Doha, the staff took Liu Shiwen to the best local hospital for the first time and closed it.According to the coach Ma Lin, the point of closing the needle is very good, and the recovery effect is also good.  Xin Lian Xin Guo Ping always pays attention to the domestic epidemic competition. There are news titles. Busan, South Korea has planned to carry out special management for the National Table Tennis Team during the World Table Tennis Championships, including living on a single floor, arranging a dedicated elevator, taking special passages, etc., butIt was opposed by the National Table Tennis Team, and the Busan World Table Tennis Sub-Committee did not agree with this approach.  When visiting the National Table Tennis Team on February 10, ITTF CEO Steve Denton revealed, “If the Chinese team cannot go to South Korea to participate, we have even considered postponing the World Table Tennis Championships.ITTF cannot continue the game without the best team.The Organizing Committee of the Busan World Table Tennis Championships immediately stated on February 12 that it is unreasonable for the Chinese team to miss the World Table Tennis Championships due to the epidemic.The organizing committee said that the three Hubei nationals among the Chinese leaders are all coaches and all fly directly to South Korea from overseas. There is no problem in entry.  The Busan World Table Tennis Championships will be held at the Busan Haeundae Exhibition Center from March 22 to 29.According to the plan, the National Table Tennis Team began to go to Busan on March 11 to practice with the South Korean team for a week. This was an agreement to replace the Table Tennis Association earlier this year.However, the joint training location of the two teams replaced the former Zhenchuan Athlete Village to Busan Gizhang Stadium.  On March 18, the Busan World Table Tennis Stadium will be open to all sports teams, and the National Table Tennis Team will enter the competition venue for training.  Despite training abroad, the National Table Tennis Team has been paying attention to the development of the domestic fight against the epidemic.On the day of the Lantern Festival, the National Table Tennis Team contacted a take-out company and delivered more than 3,000 working meals and Lantern Festival to the medical staff in the frontline fight against the epidemic in Wuhan.  In addition, Liu Guoliang also worked with ITTF to find medical resources such as masks, goggles and protective clothing among its more than 200 associations. After obtaining the resources, it was purchased by the China Table Tennis Association.The American Table Tennis Association responded for the first time and purchased 264 boxes of disinfectant wipes, which were given to the China Table Tennis Association for free.At present, the two sides have docked for the first time, and delivered these disinfectant wipes to Wuhan as soon as possible, and delivered them to the hospitals that have made the demand.  ”We have always been concerned about the domestic epidemic situation. At this time, we can only live up to the expectations of our people by redouble our efforts, train well, raise the national flag in the international arena and play the national anthem.”Liu Guoliang said.
