Butterfly Favorites: Dang Qiu's Forehand - Ovtcharov as Trainer

Butterfly Favorites: Dang Qiu’s Forehand – Ovtcharov as Trainer

(by Steve Hopkins)

Butterfly player, Dang Qiu gained reputation during the lockdown competing in the weekly Dusseldorf Masters events and accumulating more points than all of the other competitors.  Qiu is currently No. 53 in the World – the sixth ranked German, but quickly moving up in the rankings.  In fact, at the start of 2018, he was No. 1151 in the world, at the start of 2019 he was No. 72.  When this pandemic ends, you can expect the 24 year old Qiu’s rise to continue.

In the video below, you’ll see Germany’s best penholder working on his footwork and forehand technique.  And the trainer?  None other than Butterfly player Dimitrij Ovtcharov.

Dang Qiu uses a Butterfly ALC Blade, Dignics 09c on his forehand, and Tenergy 05 Hard on his backhand.
