David Decides On Tokyo

by | Apr 6, 2017

International table tennis player, David Wetherill, had to make an important decision recently after representing Great Britain in last year’s Rio Paralympic Games.

For the Uniserve sponsored Olympian it was time to decide whether to go for Tokyo and a fourth appearance at the games.

David needed to take a little time out before deciding whether to commit to Tokyo, and fortunately for all of his supporters he could not miss out on another potential opportunity to represent his country at the highest level.

After being back in competition recently, and reaching the semi finals of The Italian Open, David commented “Italy was my first competition since Rio and, although I was no.1 seed, I had no real expectations and I think my lack of tournament match practice showed a little bit”

On making that Tokyo decision David said “So the dream is still alive. After playing so well in Rio, and following some positive performance review meetings, in the end it wasn’t that difficult for the guys to encourage me towards Tokyo.

It goes without saying that I am very thankful to Iain and everyone at Uniserve. They have helped me so much over the years and I couldn’t do it without them”.

Uniserve have been sponsors since before those fantastic London games in 2012, where David became an internet sensation and accumulated over 6 million views on youtube for his staggering ‘shot of the tournament’.

If you have not seen the shot then you are in for a treat, as you can watch the clip below.
