1st Malta International Invitational Juniors and Cadets Table Tennis Tournament, 11-15 September, 2019
We are delighted and honoured to reveal that Jean-Michel Saive has accepted MTTA’s invitation and shall be visiting us during the tournament. He is the greatest Belgian player in the history of table-tennis who competed at seven consecutive Olympics between 1988 and 2012.
His table-tennis career as a player is astonishing having won a total of 130 medals (51 gold, 38 silver and 41 bronze) in international singles tournaments, including the singles title at the European Championship in 1994 convened in Birmingham (United Kingdom). In 1994 Jean-Michel Saive also held the top spot as world number one for 515 days (9 February 1994 to 8 June 1995) and again in 1996.
