Let’s rewind to the Tokyo 2020 Games. In a nail-biting finale, China, the undisputed powerhouse of table tennis, once again secured gold. The final against Germany was a display of exceptional skill and unwavering determination. Ma Long and Xu Xin orchestrated a perfect doubles performance against Timo Boll and Patrick Franziska, setting the tone for the Chinese dominance. Dimitrij Ovtcharov of Germany showcased his brilliance in a thrilling encounter with Fan Zhendong, but ultimately fell short. Ma Long then sealed the deal against a determined Boll, solidifying China’s 100% win record in the Men’s Team competition.

All eyes are now set on Paris. While this might be the final Olympic hurrah for the legendary Ma Long, China remains a strong contender for gold. He’ll be joined by Wang Chuqin and Fan Zhendong, forming a formidable trio determined to extend their nation’s perfect record.

However, a new challenger has emerged – France! Their recent silver medal finish at the ITTF World Championships in Busan 2024 has ignited excitement amongst players and fans alike. Inspired by a home crowd cheering them on, will France be able to dethrone China and write their own Olympic story?
