Mima Ito becomes Youngest Singles Champion

Mima Ito, 14, has become the youngest ever ITTF World Tour women’s singles champion. She defeated German champion Petrissa Solja in a dramatic final game. The Japanese young lady won last year’s women’s doubles title at the age of 13. She said that she was shocked to win such a big title at her age, and that it is just the beginning for her. She has set some more goals for herself for the near future, including qualifying for the Japanese team for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.


This will put her a step closer to her dream of winning the gold medal in the singles and team events at the upcoming Olympics in Tokyo in 2020. Solja, the second runner up won fourteen matches straight before the final game, in which she was able to score the women’s doubles and under-21 titles. Her achievement also made history, because no player had ever been featured in all three finals at an ITTF World Tour event before. She teamed up with Shan Xiaona in order to defeat Doo Hoi Kem and Lee Ho Ching, from Hong Kong, China. These young women are certainly making table tennis history.
