Zhuang Zedong, great Chinese table tennis player, dies

As reported by the BBC, Zhuang Zedong, the great Chinese table tennis player of the 1970s, has died. I grew up on my dad’s stories of that era, in particular how the (in his opinion) even better Li Fu Yung was ordered to throw matches against Zhuang during the madness that was the Cultural Revolution.

Not many vids (and none of any quality) of those players, sadly.
