Leader of Kazakhstan’s national table tennis team Kirill Gerassimenko earned Olympic license, Egemen.kz reports with reference to the Olympic.kz.
It became possible thanks to his position in the ITTF rankings.
High standing in the ITTF rankings allows table tennis players to book their licenses for the upcoming Summer Olympics in Tokyo.
That means Kazakhstan’s national table tennis team now has two Olympic licenses.
Anastasiya Larova of Kazakhstan earlier earned Olympic license at a qualification tournament.
