"2004 US table tennis Olympian, Whitney Ping, will serve at the London Olympic Games as one of two Athlete Service Coordinators for the 2012 US Olympic Team. Athlete Service Coordinators are former Olympians and/or Paralympians selected by the USOC Athlete's Advisory Council with the purpose of serving as an athlete resource and providing support to all US Team Athletes during the Olympic Games."
Whitney, on her selection as an ASC: "I feel incredibly honored and humbled to be selected for this important role by the Athlete's Advisory Council. My primary goal during the Olympic Games will be to ensure that all of our competing US athletes have the support they need to put forth their best performance while having a wonderful Olympic experience. To play a role in that is something that means a lot to me, and I am very much looking forward to the next few weeks in London."
