Principal Cheung and CSS’s Table Tennis School Team played with Olympic Legend Ma Lin 

China’s Table Tennis giant Ma Lin (馬琳) was invited as Guest of Honour at Creative Primary’s 30th Anniversary Sports Day. He visited Creative Primary School on 4 February 2015, the day before the sports day. He gave a talk about his life as a member of China's National Table Tennis Team and share his thoughts about what made him so successful in his brilliant sporting career. 

Ma Lin is a multiple Gold Medalist at Athens and Beijing Olympics, 18 times champion of international competitions, of which 4 were won consecutively at the World Table Tennis Championship, the most prestigious international competition for Table Tennis. 

“Besides having to maintain a strong and healthy physical state at all times, athletes should also  be extremely well prepared mentally  in order to play well under all circumstances,” Ma said, adding that he had to undergo intensive training from a very young age. When asked whom he thought had been his greatest rival in the past, he answered that it had always been himself. “I must overcome my own self-doubt and nerves before defeating others.’’ he said. 

Principal Cheung together with 4 members of CSS’s Table Tennis Team and their coach Mr Chan Siu Sing were invited to attend the sharing session and had the golden opportunity to play with our table tennis legend.
