Pereira improves ranking and focuses his goals towards Paris 2024

Beirut, Mar 26 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Andy Pereira improved two positions in the ranking and appears today in the 57th place of the World Table Tennis Tournament (WTT), in the qualifying route to Paris 2024.

The 34-year-old experienced racket added 30 units to his ranking (404), after participating last week in the Feeder Beirut Tournament, valid to ratify his position as the fourth best player in America and the most outstanding of the island.

“There are very good possibilities if I keep playing and the purpose is to try to win as many points in each event I participate,” Pereira told Prensa Latina after learning of the recent update of the WTT ranking.

Owner of the only Cuban victory in singles in a competition under the five rings, the left-hander takes every opportunity to materialize his presence in the French capital and return to this level after the London 2012 edition.

Up to 70 players with a maximum of four (two men and two women) per National Olympic Committee will be able to take part in the individual competition, scheduled to take place at the South Paris Arena 4.

“At the moment, I am very well positioned, I just need to keep adding to achieve the quota for the qualification. There is also the possibility of the pre-Olympic event in Peru, which will be very strong, since this year the United States will be added,” he commented.
