Two decades later, the Caribbean island was again represented..

At the Latin American Singles and Mixed Doubles Qualification Tournament staged in the Argentine city of Rosario some three months before the torch was lit at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, Daniela Fonseca, 18 years old at the time, reserved her berth in the multi-sport gathering.

She gained the very last women’s singles place available in Rosario, prior to enjoying mixed doubles success alongside 29-year-old Jorge Campos; to give him his full name, Jorge Moises Campos Valdes.

Thus, she became the first Cuban table tennis player to gain a place in the Olympic Games since Marisel Ramirez and Leticia Suarez had competed in 2000 in Sydney.

Follow her progress in the first edition of the ITTF Magazine…..
