Players Profile

Miu Hirano has been in the spotlight since she has set multiple “youngest player” records in her childhood. When she was in elementary school, she defeated a team of college students in a table tennis doubles game. Competing in doubles at the age of 14, Miu and her teammate won the ITTF World Tour championship title as the youngest players. In 2016, Miu won the Women’s World Cup Singles, becoming the first Japanese player to ever win. The very next year, she won the Japan Championship as youngest in history. In the same year, at the Asian Championships, she defeated multiple strong Chinese players, including the No.1 ranked player Ding Ning, in order to achieve her first victory. She also won the bronze medal in the World Table Tennis Championship in 2017, becoming the first Japanese woman to win a medal in 48 years.
