Stephanie Chan

 

Chim-Hing (Stephanie) Chan acquired her disability at age four, but only began playing table tennis at the age of 44. She is now headed to her third consecutive Parapan Am Games in 2015. She has won three medals over her first two appearances.

In early 2015, Chan joined forces with Turkey’s Kubra Ocsoy to take gold in the team event at the Bayreuth Open in Germany and become the first Canadian to win an event on the top European circuit. She added a bronze in singles. She was also on Canada’s world championship team in 2014.

Having had a personal interest in the sport since she was a child, Chan decided to take up table tennis to keep active. Today, she is looking forward to representing Canada at the Parapan American Games. The feeling of defeating challenging opponents is what feeds Chan’s desire to compete and reach higher levels. She credits her success to her hard work and positive attitude.
