Danny Seemiller created the “Elite Event” at the first ever St. Louis Open to encourage and develop American table tennis players.
Fourth seed in the “Elite Singles” event, Joey Cochran (2399) was the least likely out of the top 4 seeds to take home the championship title.
Restricted to only U.S. citizens, this event will feature some of today’s most dedicated American table tennis players.
Only U.S. Olympic eligible players (US Citizens) may enter the unique “Elite Event” which features the most prize money out of any of the events at the 4-star tournament ($2000 for the winner, $6,200 overall).
Successful a lifetime ago, when Abe Berenbaum, Bud Blattner, Jimmy McClure and Sol Schiff won titles at World Championships; the years when storm clouds were forming over Europe, the Second World War imminent, the United States of America has never been able to repeat such feats.
Texas Wesleyan University will be hosting the 2014 US National Team Trials on March 7th to 9th. Catch all the action live on www.usatt.org!
