Ryu Seung-Min (born August 5, 1982) is a Korean table tennis player who won the gold medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics in the men's singles competition. His opponent was Wang Hao, a top-seeded player from Chinese national team. Along the way, he defeated 1992 Olympic champion Jan-Ove Waldner with 4-1. Ryu is ranked eighth in the world as of 5 December 2007.[1]


Ryu Seung-Min plays penhold style. Unlike players like Ma Lin and Wang Hao, Ryu does not use the underside of his blade. Ryu relies on his outstanding footwork, explosive forehand loops and drives to win points. He also currently uses Xiom table tennis paddles and rubbers. He uses his signature model "Ryu Seung Min Special" penhold and has been using ProZRSM ever since his victory at the 2004 Summer Olympics.
