Who’s That Girl?
Zhou Jingyi Is One To Watch
By Shirley Tan
Senior Manager, Strategic Communications
|Zhou Jingyi’s first international competition as a Singapore Sports School Secondary 1 student-athlete was the 46th Safir International Table Tennis Tournament in Orebro, Sweden, where she won the Girls U14 Singles silver medal on 25 February 2018.|
Twelve-year-old Zhou Jingyi is competing against table tennis players three years older – on the world stage.
She started serious training at 5 years old and was selected into the Singapore Table Tennis Association’s Junior Development Squad at 9. Three years later, she was promoted to the Youth Training Squad, where she was given many opportunities to smoothen her rough edges.
During her PSLE year, Jingyi did not slacken her training nor give up competing. In January 2017, she represented Singapore in the South-East Asia Hopes Championships and emerged champion. In May, she went on to represent Singapore in the Asia Hopes Championships and again, finished as the champion. Having won the right to represent Asia, Jingyi took on the world in August and became the U12 Champion – the first Singaporean to become a worldwide U12 champion. This achievement earned her a place in the World Hopes Team to compete in World Cadet Challenge in October, where she advanced to the second stage of 17-32 positions. Cadet championships are for 15-year-olds and younger.
The Singapore National Age-Group U15 Champion had also represented Singapore at the South-East Asia Junior Championships in June and Asian Junior Championships in July – in the U15 category.
Amidst hitting fast balls and returning sharp smashes, how did she do in her Primary School Leaving Examinations? Jingyi achieved a T-score of close to 260 points!
