DUNELLEN – Tina Lin is a polite, soft-spoken 14-year-old Edison High School student.
Then she picks up a table tennis paddle. And when she’s playing table tennis, Tina Lin is nothing short of fierce.
She moves with incredible quickness, snapping the ball back to her practice partner just as soon as it’s arrived, swaying back and forth with the paddle in her hand, concentrating intently as the ball whips back and forth, back and forth, adjusting for spin, firing it back.
