Congratulations to all of the table tennis winners of the 2009 California State Games.
The 2009 Opening Ceremonies was a spectacular night event on Friday July 17, 2009 when “every athlete was treated like an Olympian.” It was an unusual experience for all table tennis participants at the California State Games in San Diego on Sunday 19 July 2009. It was not just about winning but also about friendship and sportsmanship. The facility at the Balboa Park Activity Center was excellent and the organizers were extremely flexible and friendly. In the Women Open Singles, Brana Vlasic won the Gold Medal and Jasmine Nguyen won the Silver Medal; in the Men Open Singles, Earl J Alto won the Gold Medal and David Umel won the Silver Medal.
In the U15 and U17 events, Justin Nguyen advanced to First Place for the Gold Medal and Anson Kahng won the Second Place title in the U15 Boys event; Justin Nguyen won the second place in the U17 Boys event after an upset by David Flores; and Jasmine Nguyen took the Gold Medal for the U17 Girls.
