Congratulations to Terence Yeung ’20 on winning the Silver Medal in U19 Singles representing Canada at the Pan American Youth Table Tennis Championships 2021 held in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic in September 2021. Terence made history by taking the highest podium in singles among Canadians in this tournament since its 2016 debut. In October 2021, Terence reached the podium again with a Bronze medal in Table Tennis Men Singles at the 2021 Canadian Championships held in Laval, Québec.

In December 2021, Terence competed at the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) World Youth Championships held in Porto, Portugal representing Canada and reached quarterfinals with his U19 Mixed Doubles partner Amy Wang from the United States. Terence also played in Doubles and Singles in the U19 Boys division and was one of 32 boys and 32 girls in the world qualified to play in individual events at this annual prestigious event. Terence was the only Canadian and one of 4 North Americans invited for the U19 categories. With his Mixed Doubles pair reaching quarterfinals, Terence made history of having reached the highest placement for Canada in any categories at World Youth Championships since 2007. He also achieved his own personal high at #6 for Mixed Doubles pair and #15 for Mixed Doubles individual in the World Youth Ranking.

Additionally, Terence is honoured to be invited by Commonwealth Games Foundation of Canada to get involved in a fundraising project for Team Canada. The bracelets will be used in the official Commonwealth Games Birmingham 2022. The official promotion will be distributed widely ahead of the Games, and Terence was featured in the November 2021 issue of the JoLee Magazine as the first promotion for this project. Please join us in recognizing Terence and help to support Team Canada in its journey to the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, England.

We are very proud of Terence’s remarkable accomplishments in his table tennis career, and wish him many more success ahead as he continues his post-secondary studies at Western University while training and preparing for the championships.
