After the update of the current Under 15 world ranking list by the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF), Izaac Quek Yong is the first Singaporean to clinch the title of World Rank Number 1 (April 2021). In 2020, Izaac won the Cadet Boys’ singles title without yielding a single game at the ITTF Swedish Junior & Cadet Open. He finished third in the men’s singles and first in the men’s doubles event together with his teammate Ethan Poh at the recent National Table Tennis Grand Finale.
Izaac said in a statement: “I am very happy that I am able to achieve this target. It’s a milestone and I’m really grateful for the support given to me by Singapore Table Tennis Association, SportsSG, Singapore Sports Institute and the Singapore Sports School.”
