Man with no hands plays table tennis

Ibrahim Hamato is a man from Egypt, who grew up loving table tennis.


However, after a terrible accident at the age of ten he lost both his hands. Not even this accident extinguished his passion for ping pong; he decided he would keep playing 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.
