VINCENT Wu and Grace Yee's stellar performance at the Oceania Cadet qualification resulted in them being named in the 2014 Oceania Cadet Team.

The two are competing the Oceania Championships currently in progress in the Cook Islands.

Wu is the current national U15 Boys champion while Yee, younger sister of current national U15, U18 and U21 Girls champions and 2013 Oceania Talent Team member Sally Yee.

Fiji Table Tennis Federation president Anthony Ho said the two performed really well in the first competition of the tournament.

"Undoubtedly, the surprise has been our rising star, Grace Yee who is still an U12 player competing in the U15 event for the first time and in her first overseas outing," he said.

"Joy for Grace Yee and disappointment for elder sister, Sally, whom she defeated to clinch the final spot in the Oceania Girls team.

"Grace performed beyond the coach's expectations losing in a close 2-3 margin to 2013 Oceania Cadet member, Vanina Santino and new member, Solene Danger both of New Caledonia."

The Oceania Cadet Team will represent the Oceania contingent in the 2014 ITTF World Cadet Challenge in Barbados from October 23 to November 1.

Competition at the Oceania Championships continues with the Youth Olympic Qualifications, World Junior Team qualifications and World Junior Circuit events.
