Local athletes go to Olympics
By Helen Tracey-Noren
The final trials for the 2012 London Olympics for North American table tennis players resulted in selection of three members of the India Community Center (ICC) for the USA team at the 2012 Olympics: Ariel Hsing, Lily Zhang, and Timothy Wang. All train at and are sponsored by the ICC.
"In 2008, my goal was to have a player from ICC to qualify for 2012 Olympics. I also expressed it at the end in our first ever training video and also made a separate video with a Olympic dream." said Rajul Sheth, the Director of Sports and Recreation for the ICC. Sheth's goal for 2016 is to have their gym's current athletes win a medal in the Olympics and to produce two more Olympic-bound athletes.
