GRAND RPAIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - When we think about the Summer Olympics, sports like gymnastics, swimming and track and field immediately come to mind. The Olympic Games also feature sports that aren't quite as popular, especially in the United States, including table tennis. Grand Rapids recently played host to the U.S. Open of table tennis which featured some members of the U.S. Olympic team. We had a chance to catch up with them and learn more about the women representing Team USA. Tune in on July 27 to learn more about the West Michigan connection to the London Summer Olympics in Jack Dole's special Olympic Hopes, Gold Dreams.
