Early Table Tennis Trivia

The first World Championships were held in London in 1926 and from then until 1939 the game was dominated by players from Central Europe. In the period 1930 – 35 Victor Barna of Hungary won 5 of the 6 Men’s Singles events at the World Championships five years in a row. He won 22 gold medals at World Championships in his career, and 40 medals overall.
