Hana Goda

Goda has been playing table tennis for ten years, first picking up the sport aged four.
Last May, the 14-year old Hana became the youngest table tennis player to win an African senior continental event with her triumph in Lagos, Nigeria.
She clinched gold at the ITTF-Africa Cup, the second-most-important continental event in table tennis behind only the African Senior Championships.
Last June, she won the gold medal with the women's team at the Mediterranean Games.
Born on December 12, 2007, Goda is the age-group world number one at under-15 and under-17 level and the world number three among under-19s.
Now, she has the world in her sights after topping the African field.
