(ABC 6 News) - Three athletes from the Rochester Table Tennis Club have qualified for the US Youth National Team.
11-year-old Mandy Yu, her 8-year-old sister Abigail and 9-year-old Isabella Luo all qualified for the National Team during the trials in New York last week. Both Yu sisters are the number-one ranked players in the nation in their age groups. Mandy has been playing for the last 5 years and says the sports is easy to fall in love with because it is challenging.
"It's very difficult because the ball is very fast and the ball is very small too. You have to watch the opponent and know where the opponent is going to hit to the next spot," Mandy said.
The girls are excited to be representing the National Team, and hope they can do so for years to come.
"I really want to become an Olympian some day because it's really cool to represent your country," Mandy said.
