Would you mind writing an article as informative as this one about the most talented young boys in US table tennis as well?
Information about US cadet/junior tt players is hard to find on the internet, the information given on the USATT webpage doesn't seem to be up to date... Thank you.

Until the US refrains from calling Table Tennis, pingpong, it will never catch on as a serious sport. Give it its proper name and people will take it more seriously. Cmon, who wants to be known as a "pingpong champion"?
