Tuesday, May 5, 2015 made history as the Alberta Government saw a change in leadership as the ‘Orange Crush‘ movement of the New Democratic Party (NDP) claimed a solid majority of seats in the legislature. The NDP, led by party leader and Premier-elect Rachel Notley, brings many new faces to the new government, which so happens to include Edmonton Table Tennis Club (ETTC) member Thomas Dang. Dang, who is a University of Alberta computer science major, unseated the Progressive Conservative incumbent Matt Jeneroux in the Edmonton -Southwest riding. Hear what Dang had to say about his election night victory on CTV2’s Alberta Primetime.
Dang was active at the junior level as a competitive table tennis player and has been a member of Edmonton Table Tennis Club for many years. Most recently, he traveled with our club to a team table tennis tournament that took place in Saskatoon. Here is a quick highlight of Thomas Dang in action:
