Our Champion for Peace

PETER KARLSSON

When I was playing, sport was all about winning. But today after my career, I feel sport is much more than that. Sport gives an education for life; a structured life and fantastic values.


World Champion in doubles and European Champion in singles, Peter Karlsson is part of the Hall of Fame of Table Tennis.
In October 2010, he went to Dili in Timor-Leste to launch the ‘Ping Pong Ba Dame’ program, a joint initiative from Peace and Sport and the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF).
