Man With No Hands Plays Table Tennis By Holding Paddle In His Mouth

Egyptian Ibrahim Hamato grew up loving table tennis, but after a terrible accident at the age of ten he lost both his hands. But that didn’t extinguish his passion for ping pong. He decided he would play the game no matter what. After years of practice he has perfected the game by holding the paddle in his mouth.

His message: nothing is impossible. 

The International Table Tennis Federation was inspired by his story, and invited Ibrahim as an honored guest to the ZEN-NOH 2014 World Team Table Tennis Championships in Tokyo, Japan.
