Ho leads table tennis team to triumph
A pair of Richmond Olympians led their respective teams to the final of the Henry Cup Table Tennis Championship Sunday at the Richmond Olympic Oval.
Andre Ho's Bridgeport One team outlasted Mo Zhang's squad in the final.
"It was a big surprise to me that so many top players from around B.C. showed up (among the 100 entries)," said Tony Shaw, who helped organize the event. "I think one of the reasons was that there was $2,600 in total cash prizes."
The talented players also drew plenty of fan interest, with Shaw estimating as many as 300 people took in the one-day event.
The event also celebrates Chinese New Year, which officially begins this Sunday.
