Sarah Jalli Moving Up to #1
After her performance last week, Sarah Jalli has climbed the rankings to become #1 in the US for cadets. Previously, she has won many titles for hopes and mini-cadets. Now at the age of 14, she is focused on winning cadet, junior, and adult tournaments.
Her attitude toward tournaments and training is right on target. She makes daily training goals and makes small progress at each session. In competition, she realizes that wins fuel her success and losses give her the ability to understand her game better and make valuable adjustments. Each day, her understanding of the game is growing more and more.
There are many challenges ahead, but she has supportive parents, a supportive local table tennis community, awesome sponsors, a solid 4-year training plan in place for maximum development, good training partners, a growing academy (Samson Dubina Table Tennis Academy), and the right work ethic it takes to reach an elite level! The future is bright for Sarah Jalli!
