SEAG Filipino veteran serves as coach of Malaysian table tennis team

MANILA, Philippines — Excellence continues to be the name of the game for Julius Esposo.

Esposo, a Southeast Asian Games veteran and former national team coach, is currently coaching the Penang table tennis youth team.

His team participated in the World Youth Contender Championship held in Puerto Princesa, Palawan.

One of his wards, Lim See Kiam, finished 16th in the under-17 and under-19 girls classes.

Esposo said he is playing well despite being only 15 years old.

“Hopefully, she will be part of the Malaysian national team for next year’s SEA Games,” the coach said in Filipino.

Esposo currently coaches the Malaysian team despite his disability.

The leader tipped his hat to the Table Tennis Association for National Development (TATAND) for providing opportunities and helping him get back on track through grassroots development programmes.

“TATAND will help me improve my skills and knowledge in coaching and organizing tournaments at the grassroots level. I got off,” he said.

Esposo is currently hosting two local tournaments, the 2nd Toto Paul Fishbroker Cup International Table Tennis Invitational Tournament and the World School Games Qualifying Tournament, to be held later this year. Both tournaments will be held at Ayala Mall in Fairview, Quezon City.
