Sometimes its hard to get such a good look at the past of our great sport, so over the past few months, I have made it my duty to find the best photos from our sport over the past 30 years. here are some I'd like to share. 

The Great Wall
Rong Guotuan, Li Furong, Zhuang Zedong
1986 Asian Cup, won by Wei Qingguang (pictured)
He Zhiwen, when he still played for China 
He Zhili, the chinese ex-patriot who in 87, won the women's singles gold in New Delhi, as well as three ATTC titles (for China) and one for Japan, where she beat Deng Yaping in the final (one of Deng's hand full of losses)
The great Jiang Jialiang, twice in a row a winner of the WTTC
Chen Jing, the first Olympian
Wei Qingguang and Chen Longcan
Deng Yaping, Chen Jing, Qiao Hong
Wei Qingguang found immense success after leaving China, being one of Japan's most dominant players, and after retiring a valued coach.
Even Chen Longcan played in the JTTL for awhile, though by this time in the very early 90s, his career had finally come to a close.

True - but it was Zedong who was at a crossroads and was the one who made the decision whether to speak with an American or not...

Three young Chinese kids - one of them (guess who) is David Zhuang, another one- great Jiang Jialiang (from the time when they both were on the same junior provincial team! - Guangdong Province Youth Team)

Check out this one

http://oldphotosjapan.com/en/photos/321/practicing-table-tennis

Back in 1935 they were already using J-Pen shaped paddles! this means that shape is older than period after WWII when supposedly TT became more popular in the East after USA/UK influence has increased there significantly.

Um, that's not right-
From L to R- Zhuang Zedong, ZHANG XIELIN, Rong Guotuan, Li Furong, XU YINSHENG

Xi Enting came much later. This is the 1961 SC winning team.

He Zhiwen was in the Chinese team for the 85 and 87 Worlds, best result was a bronze in the MD.

Who was his doubles partner? I know Wei and Chen won the 87 worlds for doubles. 

In '85 he partnered Fan Changmao to the semi-final (and made the last 16 of the singles).
In '87 he partnered Jiang Jialiang to the QF, and He Zhili (that years women's world champion) in the Mixed, where they also made the QF.
I guess he left China, along with lots of others, when he lost his place in the National squad but was free to play abroad.
