  1. SAM HARNETT: The upcoming Olympic games will be a challenge for Zhang and her teammates. Not one is ranked in the top 100 players worldwide. Sheth is already looking to the future. He says Zhang and her teammate Ariel Hsing are in the top ten for girls under 17. RAJUL SHETH: They’re too young right now. It’s great achievement that they qualified for the Olympics at age of 16. But probably up to 4 years they are going to strike hard to win a medal in Olympics. SAM HARNETT: Sheth says the club will be watching every move of their young Olympians on July 28, when the table tennis competition gets under way in London. For KQED News, I’m Sam Harnett.
