There is speculation that long time Chinese national team member Shang Kun could be moving to the Oceania region very soon.

After being unable to secure a place in China’s team for the Liebherr 2017 World Table Tennis Championships, Shang is looking to leave the national squad.

With his table tennis career ending, Shang has decided to turn his attention to study and it seems as though Australia is his top pick for possible university destinations.

Having Shang in the Oceania region could provide athletes with a world class sparing partner. Here’s hoping the rumours are true.
