Meet Coach Hugo

I am a passionate Runner (2-3 half marathons per year), who also likes to spend his holidays hiking in nature and always fits in 1 swim and 1 gym session a week. I also am a recreational value investor (investments both in the US and Europe) and happily married husband to my wife Maryann with whom I love discovering new locations in New York, attending musicals or concerts, and trying new types of food.

Favorite Table Tennis Memory

My latest favorite is my 2021 victory against the then Luxembourg Number 3 Trajan Ciociu, where I was down 1-2 and 5-9, and did an incredible comeback which allowed the team to turn the decisive game for our against relegation in to the second league, where we were down 0-3.
