Will Shin Yu-bin, the ‘next-generation ace’ of women’s table tennis, grow again?

Shin Yu-bin (17, Korean Air, photo), who gained valuable experience by participating in the Olympics as the youngest Korean women’s table tennis player at the Tokyo Olympics, made splendid achievements such as winning women’s doubles and runner-up in singles and team events at the Qatar Asian Championships last September. With a more mature appearance, she emerged as the ‘next-generation ace’ of Korean women’s table tennis.

Now, Shin Yu-bin will participate in the world championship for the first time in her life to grow another span. To this end, Shin Yubin departed for Houston, the US, where the 2021 World Championships Finals will be held through Incheon International Airport on the 18th. This competition will be held from the 23rd to the 29th.

This world championship is a stage to confirm Shin Yu-bin’s true ability. This is because all the powerful European powers, including the world’s strongest China, who did not participate in the last Asian Championships, will come out. With the addition of ‘Finals’ to the name of this tournament, where only individual matches are held, the tournament goes straight into the tournament without a preliminary round and leads to a thin-ice match where even if you lose just one match, you are eliminated immediately. Shin Yu-bin will compete in women’s singles, women’s doubles and mixed doubles in this tournament. The women’s doubles is paired with Jeon Ji-hee (29, POSCO Energy), and the mixed doubles is paired with Cho Dae-seong (19, Samsung Life Insurance). The singles will start from the round of 128 and the doubles will start from the round of 64.
