JEON JIHEE BIO
Jeon Jihee rose to prominence in 2011 when she won the Moroccan Open as a 19-year-old naturalized Korean. Born in Hebei province, the former China youth player moved to Korea when she was 16 years old. She boasts of a powerful backhand attack and a unique left hand grip that gives her an advantage over her competition. In 2015, Jeon and doubles partner Yang Haeun won four titles on the ITTF World Tour winning in Croatia, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic and Argentina. The same year, the coffee-loving paddler was South Korea’s national champion and player of the year.
