The Pan American Team is preparing at the Jiangsu Provincial Training Centre in Nanjing for the 2015 Toronto Games. The trainings schedule will feature 6 hours training per day for 6 days a week. Next to table tennis, this will include physical, mental and technical training to win a medal on home soil at these 2015 Games. At the end of June they will participate in the Korean Open.

Week 1 with Anqi Luo

What does your daily and weekly schedule look like?
We have two training sessions everyday from Monday to Saturday, and we have a break on Sundays. The training schedule varies everyday, sometimes it is morning practice and afternoon practice, sometimes it’s afternoon and evening. Everyday we practice for around 6 hours.

How do you feel physically, mentally after the first week?
After the first few days of practice, we were all exhausted, the physical trainings were the hardest and I was sore everywhere. I couldn’t even walk up the stairs thanks to frog jumps.

What is your goal for the end of this trainings camp?
I hope to strengthen in several technical aspects as well as my endurance here in Nanjing.

Is the excitement about the Pan Am Games growing?
The excitement about the Pan Am Games are definitely growing and we shall integrate that excitement in our training everyday to receive the best results to prepare for the Games.

PS. The food at the cafe here is really good!

PPS. The mosquitoes in Nanjing are awful little creatures. Agghhh!!
