IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: JUN GAO - TABLE TENNIS STAR

Rate this Entry

Chang_jun_gao_usa_returns_a_forehan
America's highest ranked female table tennis player will likely be journeying back to her native China to compete in this summer's Olympics. Jun Gao provides some inspiration to those of us born in the late 1960s. She's turning 40 in just a few months and is still knocking off players half her age. The American will have some very tough competition from her Chinese counterparts who occupy the top five positions in the world rankings.



Gao has been a star in the game for decades. She won a silver medal in doubles for China in the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona and then retired from the game and moved to the US. She was back in action soon enough, however, and has been competing for the US National Team since 1996. She's been to the last several Olympics and has numerous world and national titles.

    Unfortunately if you read the Wall Street Journal's recent article about table tennis, she's not a "real" american since she wasn't born here. For the "Loser" Eric Owen, only "real" americans who are born in the US deserve to represent the US. The Wall Street Journal article conveniently left out the fact that the guy who beat Eric Owen immigrated to US in 1992 and that his english name is David Zhuang. The Wall Street Journal article uses David's chinese name, presumably to make David seem more alien.
