Chris Yan

Chris Yan (table tennis) is a two-time Commonwealth Games representative, with a career-best finish of fifth in men’s doubles with Heming Hu at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. Born in Xi’an, China, Chris started playing table tennis on a concrete table in his neighbourhood in China, before coming to Australia with his family and becoming one of the nation’s best players. The right-handed shake grip player made his Olympic debut at the Rio 2016 Games and won the Australian Olympic Qualification Tournament to earn his selection for the Tokyo Olympics. In 2020, Yan was selected as Table Tennis Australia’s 2020 Victor Barna Memorial Trophy as the Australian Senior Player of the Year on the back of his impressive performance at the Oceania Olympic Qualification Tournament where he was undefeated and won two crucial matches in the final against New Zealand to ensure Australia achieved maximum quota places for the Tokyo Olympic Games.
