Nostalgia in Belgium (left to right) Frans Lanckman, Jean-Michel Saive, André Damman, Pierre Juliens and Alex Rosmarin Photo: courtesy of Pierre Juliens) by Ian Marshall, ITTF Publications Editor Now retired from international duty; nevertheless Jean-Michel Saive continues to compete in the Belgian National League; he represents Logis Auderghem. Recently he invited the man who was once his mentor, André Damman, now a member of the ITTF President’s Council, as the guest of honour. Good news and it would appear that Jean-Michel Saive has forgiven André Damman for making him sit on the bench and watch Remo de Prophetis, Thierry Cabrera and Didier Leroy be the selection time and time again. A great deal of water has passed under the bridge since the 1983 World Championships
