Finn Luu (table tennis) made his Commonwealth Games debut in Birmingham where he lost the bronze-medal play-off in the men’s doubles with Nicholas Lum and reached the quarter finals of mixed doubles with Yangzi Liu. He also lost to the eventual gold medallist in his opening round match men’s singles and was part of the men’s team that narrowly missed a place in the quarter finals on a countback. Finn started playing at the age of 6 with his older brother Skyy, encouraged by their father who played the game socially. Finn quickly fell under the tutelage of Simon Gerada and his father Joe at the Loops Table Tennis Club in Melbourne. His first international successes came when he combined with Lee Yonghun and Nicholas Lum to win the junior boys’ team title at the 2019 Oceania Junior and Cadets Championships in Tonga, then again with Lum just days later to win both the cadets and junior boys doubles titles. Finn, who was born left-handed but plays right-handed using a shake handgrip, always re-ties his shoes and makes sure his towel is folded before a match. He and Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games teammate Nicholas Lum run a YouTube channel promoting the sport called Flickpong.
