The WTT Bangkok Star Tournament is nearing its end, and the biggest harvest this time should be Lin Gaoyuan, the male player of National Table Tennis, who won the 3 championships of men's singles, men's doubles and mixed doubles alone, which is also Lin Gaoyuan to regain his championship throne after 1420 days. How long is 1420 days? For nearly 4 years, Lin Gaoyuan also cried with joy after the game.
Born in 1995, Lin Gaoyuan is currently ranked tenth in the world, and his men's singles final in the Bangkok Star Tournament is against South Korea's Jang Yu-jin, and the two sides still won after seven games; In the men's doubles final, Lin Gaoyuan is his partner Lin Shidong, and the two play against the South Korean pair Zhang Yuzhen and Lin Zhongxun, because Lin Gaoyuan and Lin Shidong have not teamed up, this time is just to create opportunities for young players to exercise, then it is rare to win the first place in men's doubles this time; In the mixed doubles final, Lin Gaoyuan was partnered by Chen Xingtong, so they also defeated South Korea's Lim Joong-hoon and Shin Yubin to win the title.
Then the victory of the Korean players in the three battles is also a great encouragement to Lin Gaoyuan and other players. On the other side, it is worth mentioning that Chen Xingtong of the women's team, in addition to her partner Lin Gaoyuan won the mixed doubles championship, her partner Qu Man also defeated Taipei's Zheng Yijing and Li Yuzhen to win the championship; Chen Xingtong's women's singles match defeated South Korea's Zhu Qianxi to win three titles. Chen Xingtong's match was also lamented by the fans on the scene several times, and she also fought the spot to beat the fans and won the game with her own initiative.
After the game, fans paid the most attention to the ranking and the prize money. Then Lin Gaoyuan and Chen Xingtong, who won the title of two triple crowns this time, are also fortunate to improve from the world ranking. First of all, Lin Gaoyuan and Chen Xingtong can accumulate 600 points for the championship, then Lin Gaoyuan's world ranking points have reached 2690 points, jumping from the tenth place in the world to the eighth place, and Chen Xingtong's world ranking points are now 3255 points, then they can rise from the sixth to the fifth place in the women's side.
However, the reason why Ma Long, Sun Yingsha and others did not participate in the Bangkok Stars this time is that it is completely seamless with the previous Macau Championship, and the second is because the points and prize money are too low. The champion Lin Gaoyuan and Chen Xingtong can win the championship prize is 3,500 US dollars, then the singles are 10,000 US dollars, we calculate according to this, 2 mixed singles, equivalent to one person can get 13,500 US dollars is equivalent to about 93,000 yuan. However, according to the regulations of the "Interim Measures for the Administration of Prize Funds for National Team Athletes", 40% of the prize money belongs to the fund to be paid to the national team and other accompanying personnel, and only 60% of the amount can be owned by the athletes themselves.
Then we calculate according to the air ticket 5,000 and the accommodation of 10,000 a week, and the final arrival is only about 30,000 yuan, and this does not include consumption such as meals. And in many international events of advanced table tennis, if the athletes themselves do not have logistical support and rely entirely on their own pockets to participate, there is not much money left. However, as far as we know, the national team has a bottom, but the Japanese team itself is self-financing, such as the ranking and bonus of this competition we refer to, the first place Lin Gaoyuan and Chen Xingtong 93,000 yuan; the second place Qu Man 30,000 yuan; the fifth week Qihao 18,000 yuan; the sixth Xu Yingbin 15,000 yuan; the seventh Liang Jingkun 11,300 yuan, I will not repeat it later, according to normal consumption, the fifth Zhou Qihao to Liang Jingkun has lost money to play the game.
