VIDEO: The Legacy of Table Tennis in Vanuatu
By Emma Cullen of The Reporters' Academy
Table tennis has become a growing sport in Vanuatu, and Anolyn Lulu's Olympic journey has inspired many back at home to become engaged in the sport. She explains to us the impact that her coaching back at home has had on the initiative for table tennis, how it has inspired youth such as Yoshua Shing, who at the age of 12, became the youngest competitor in the 2006 Commonwealth Games. Therefore, the legacy of table tennis in Vanuatu, inspired by Anolyn, will continue to pave a way for future athletes to compete internationally.
