FREMANTLE athletes have returned from a state table tennis competition with a raft of medals.

One of the youngest competitors in the field, Fremantle Table Tennis Club’s Lenny Properjohn, at just 14-years-old and living with Cerebral Palsy, took out the Athletes with Disabilities gold medal at the State Open Championships earlier this month.

An avid table tennis fan, and a player for the last three-and-a-half years, Fremantle Table Tennis Club’s Gordon Lee said Lenny had a bright future in the sport and could even hold his own against able-bodied players.

Fremantle’s Jeremy Khoo, now working in Geraldton, won the Country Men’s Singles gold medal, while Nanako Nomura won silver alongside partner Mary Dombrose in the Women’s Open Doubles.

Lee also came home with two medals, taking gold in the over 70 and over 75 age groups without dropping a game.
