Australian Table Tennis Olympian Wins Commonwealth Gold

28-year-old para-paddler, Melissa Tapper, recently won Australia’s first table tennis gold medal at the Commonwealth Games. Tapper suffered a brachial plexus injury at birth, which resulted in Erb’s Palsy. After an operation at four months old, she now has 30 per cent use of her right arm. Despite the challenges caused by the condition, Tapper did not let the injury inhibit her athletic career. She picked up table tennis at age eight, made the national junior team at 14 and became Australia’s No. 1 female junior at 18. After moving out of the junior leagues, Tapper switched from able-bodied to para events and finished fourth at the London Paralympics in 2012.
