Tokyo World Table Tennis Tournament Cai Zhenhua’s opponent Seifer is still playing table tennis for 31 years
Minnan.com April 30. Yesterday, at the World Table Tennis Team Tournament in Tokyo, the reporter saw the 45-year-old Belgian star Michel Sever (Great Sever).This is not the first time he has participated in the Tokyo World Table Tennis Championships. In 1983, he has already participated in the Tokyo World Table Tennis Championships.  Today, 31 years later, he has participated in 23 World Table Tennis Championships and is still active in the table tennis world.Since table tennis was listed as an official event by the Olympic Games in 1988, he also participated in all 7 Olympic Games.In his heyday, he was one of the few European athletes who could compete with Chinese players. In 1994, his world ranking had risen to the first place for 515 days.It is helpless for Big Sever not to retire, because European countries do not attach importance to table tennis. When he participated in the first World Table Tennis Championship, the Chinese team at that time included Cai Zhenhua, Jiang Jialiang, Guo Yuehua and others. Now they represent the Chinese team to participate in this World Table Tennis Championship.Zhang Jike, Ma Long, Xu Xin, Wang Hao and Fan Zhendong, of which Fan Zhendong was born in 1997, is 28 years away from Sever.  In response, Sever’s Chinese coach Wang Dayong explained, “Many European countries feel that it is impossible to develop this project at all, so even France, which was once keen on table tennis, and Germany are now reluctant to engage in table tennis.Only let the veterans continue to bear.”
