13-year-old Jacob has been working hard all year at the Samson Dubina Table Tennis Academy and at home!  Even during the lockdown, he was training daily with his dad, with his table tennis robot, and running up to 5 miles/day.  Back at the academy, he worked hard at the Ohio Mega Camps making daily improvements, and now his work is paying off.
