According to the ITTF website, Korean star Kim Kyung Ah is one of the world's most experienced players. I would imagine that there are hundreds of players competing in the world senior championships that got underway today in Sweden who have been playing table tennis longer than Ms. Ah has been alive.NO WVC STREAMING
The World Veteran Championships appears to have no live streaming. Unfortunate. You would think organizers would realize that people enjoy seeing the legends of the sport compete. "Senior tours" in golf and tennis are very successful and the same would hold true for table tennis. Much more interesting than that mixed doubles garbage we were force fed over the weekend.
It's already been mentioned that Waldner and Persson are blowing off the WVC. Another notable who would have qualified to be there is Evgueni Chtchetinine, who is instead competing in this week's Challenger Series. Personally I think being a veterans world champion who is still competing in regular top level competition also would open up a lot of endorsement deals. Instead of trying to pretend they're not old, these guys should take advantage of it.
