Hi Sony,

Just letting you know how Dillon went at the Oceania Cup & 
Championships in Bendigo recently. He had a great week, with 
lots of matches and experience. He was a member of the winning
Open Men’s team & the winning U/21 men’s team. He also won 
the U/21 mixed doubles with Vi Bui, was runner-up in the U/21 
doubles with Yang Shen, and took bronze in the Men’s doubles 
with Yang, and bronze in U/21 singles. He also had a 13/11 in 
the 5th win over Yoshua Shing, who has won the Pacific Cup 
the last 3 years, and was also an olympian at the 2012 London 
Olympics.p1

During the event the Australian team for a major junior event 
in the Cook Islands was announced, and Dillon was selected in 
the U/18 team. This trip takes in several events over 10 days, 
including the Oceania Youth Olympic Qualification event, for 
which Dillon is the reserve, an ITTF Training Camp, which 
will be run by a top international coach, and an ITTF Junior 
Circuit event, with competitors from Europe as well as the 
Oceania region. This all takes place from 21st May.

As you can see, Dillon is very busy with his table tennis, 
and has lots to look forward to. He has also recently joined 
Mark Smythe's coaching team, which contains several ex 
olympians, so that will be great experience as well.p1

He is also looking forward to playing in the Sunraysia team 
at the upcoming Country Week event in Melbourne.

Regards, Julie.

Update: 22/5/2014

Hi Sony,

Just wanted to let you know that 
the selections have been made for 
the state teams for the National 
Senior and U/21 Championships in 
Perth next month. Dillon has had 
great success this year in senior 
ranks as well as junior, and was 
thrilled to be selected in the 
Victorian Senior team. He is 
third in the team, behind two 
Australian Commonwealth Games 
team members (for Edinburgh this 
year), David Powell and Heming Hu, 
and this is a big step in his 
career.

Regards, Julie.
