Greek table tennis…

Greek table tennis player Kalinikos Kreanga won a silver medal at the Men’s World Cup in Jiangyin, China, yesterday after losing 4-1 to China’s Ma Lin, the world’s number one, in the final. ‘I can only repeat that Ma Lin is the best player in the world,’ said Kreanga of his rival, who played before 4,000 home spectators. Kreanga also reached the final at another major tournament, last year’s Grand Finals, where he also settled for silver.
