Show Notes

Today's guest is world-renowned Table Tennis champion Lily Yip, who we are honored to have compete at our World Senior Games this year! Lily is a Chinese-born American table tennis player and coach who currently resides in New Jersey. Lily started playing the sport at 7 years old and became a member of the Guangdong provincial team at 15 years old. When she was 24 years old, she moved to the United States and became an American citizen four years later. Lily competed in women’s singles and doubles at both the 1992 and 1996 Olympics and has competed in 3 Pan American Games, 9 World Championships, and 3 World Team Cups, winning plenty of medals along the way! Lily loves to share her skills and love of the game with others: she and her son were national mixed doubles champions in 2005, and a year later, Lily and her daughter won the women’s doubles at the US Open. She continues to coach and compete with her students.

Kyle and Lil also discuss the changes to this year's Concert and Celebration.
