My first trip to China seems so long ago now. One of the most eye-opening experiences of my many years in table tennis. I observed the quality and level of players who were not even close to the province level in China and came to many realizations of what was missing for me to find any success even within my own competitive circles. I went back to New Zealand in good form, consistent, steady and confident - finally making the national team for my first World Championships.  This trip will always be a strong reminder to me of the amount of work it takes to achieve anything at a high level in life! #throwback #tabletennis #china #pingpong #training #tenisdemesa #tischtennis #goals #memories
Back to training with the Boss and her short pips! Consistency is key, we train basic stuff but it's good for positioning and solidifying foundations. Playing against a dead block means if you are out of position even with basic strokes then the ball goes into the net! #tabletennis #pingpong #sport #training #boss #dailygrind #autoimmune
Another 8 weeks passes by and I'm back again. Life has thrown some more obstacles my way this year,  but with each new challenge I grow more motivated to keep pushing my limits. Nothing worthwhile in life is ever earned easily. I'm happy to say my infusions are working well and everything has been great. Fingers crossed for a long remission! #autoimmune #UC #ankylosingspondylitis #health #life #justkeepswimming #onwardsandupwards

Coming back into it with some fixed drills and trying to really improve positioning and consistency. Looking forward to the 10 day transformation challenge starting tomorrow with @the_good_inside it's time to really get in the zone! #tabletennis #pingpong #training #dailygrind #sport #autoimmune #practice #letsgo
It's all tied up at 2-2 and I desperately need to win this point or I'm in danger! @_coachmetabletennis this is your challenge, a corner 'kick' of sorts, it's about 9 feet (excuse the imperial measurement) from the corner of the table to your shooting spot. The ball tee is about the diameter of a 600ml bottle at the bottom but marginally taller (it cannot fall over during the trick or it doesn't count so make sure it has some weight) Good luck mate! #challenge #tabletennis #pingpong #battle #showdown #tie #winnertakesall #worldcup
What else are spatulas for, flipping burgers and playing pong! Throwback to the @joolausa Prop Challenge ๐Ÿคฃ #tabletennis #trickshots #pingpong #tricks #challenge #sport #like #follow #lasvegas
