The 2003 World Champion Werner Schlager visited China just recently to participate in an activity hosted by the Shanghai Table Tennis Association. As the new director, Wang Liqin welcomed Werner Schlager and even had an exhibition game for all the fans. Wang Liqin is very happy to see an old friend. 

PingPang World. Werner Schlager and Wang Liqin have been the superior names in the World Championships roughly a decade ago. Just recently, these two legends reunited for table tennis. 

Last March 25, the Shanghai Table Tennis Association held an activity in a shopping mall which invited two table tennis legends Werner Schlager and their very own Wang Liqin. The event had exhibition matches with Schlager playing against amateurs. 

"I also have participated in public table tennis activities back in Europe. But, amateur players in China are at a high level." 

After the match, Wang Liqin wrote on his Weibo: "I am very happy to see once again my old friend Mister Schlager. I hope that everyone will enjoy and participate more in table tennis."
