9th FIT Open - Metrofunding Cup Table Tennis Championships
by Lily Yip
Our 9th FIT Tournament at this fantastic location was a huge success. We always appreciate and thank our wonderful sponsors of this event, held here in the heart of New York City, the greatest city in the World! Our major sponsors for this event were Metro Funding Corp represented by Mr. David Hecht, President, Fashion Institute of Technology represented by Ms. Kerri McTeirnan and Mr. Wayne Chin and YCEA represented by Mr. Gerald Chang.
This years fall tournament was held a few weeks early but we still had a great turnout. The Open Event was won by Gao Yun Jun over Ernesto Ebuen in a very exciting final. These two have met a couple of times in previous events with this time, Gao overpowering Ernesto's consistency. We also had one three way tie that was an actual tie all the way down to and including points. We had the three players pick the closest number between 0 and 100 to break the tie. In all of our years of playing and running tournaments this was a first for us.
Our next tournament is coming up in two weeks in Edison, New Jersey and as soon as we finish here we will focus our attention on our 5th Everbright Open on November 8.
Again I wish to give a big thank you to the table tennis community and especially to all of those players that participated. I hope to see you all again.
