Jorgen Persson has probably just played in his final Olympics. That's saying something. This is his seventh.
Persson and his Swedish teammates were beaten 3-1 Friday by Germany in the team competition.
Persson, 46, is one of three table tennis players to play in every Olympics since 1988, when the game was first introduced into the games.
The other two — Jean-Michel Saive of Belgium and Zoran Primorac of Croatia — lost in singles and are not playing the team event. They have said they are unlikely to return. Persson feels the same way.
