Chinese Table Tennis Association suspends Kong Linghui
Winner of all the major titles the sport has to offer, currently the head coach of the Chinese Women’s Team; Kong Linghui has been sent home from the current Liebherr World Championships which commenced on Monday 29th May.

A statement was issued recently by the Chinese Table Tennis Association.

The statement reads:

CTTA has contacted Kong Linghui to understand the situation immediately after being informed by the media regarding the lawsuit against Kong Linghui.

Based on Kong’s response and recall of the incident, the CTTA thinks that it has seriously violated the public servant’s regulations and disciplinary requirements. As such, the CTTA has decided to suspend Kong Linghui’s duties as the Head Coach of the Chinese National Women’s Team, to reflect on his actions, and to return to China for further investigation.

The CTTA takes a firm stand against athletes, coaches and staff being involved in activities that violates social ethics, and will further investigate into Kong Linghui’s case. The case will be dealt with severely according to the relevant code of regulations.

This case will serve as a severe warning and lesson to strengthen the management, education and nurture of athletes and coaches to establish a positive mentality and moral image of the national team.
