Berlin (dpa / bb) – The table tennis aces Nina Mittelham and Shan Xiaona from the German champions TTC Berlin Eastside are aiming for a medal at the World Team Championships. The five-man DTTB women’s squad is number five in the title fights in Chengdu, China from September 30th to October 9th.

The 25-year-old Mittelham, who will play in Japan in the first half of the coming season, is pain-free again after suffering a racquet arm injury in the final of the European Championships in Munich in August. According to his own statement, the 13th in the world rankings “can train normally again, but has to be careful with the intensity.”

Born in China, Shan has been a German national player since 2013 and, after her debut at the Individual World Championships in 2019, is now contesting her first team world championship for the DTTB.
