Armless Table Tennis Player Overcomes Adversity

Ibrahim Hamato has no arms, but that hasn’t stopped him from becoming a top-notch table tennis player.

Hamato lost his arms in an accident at age 10, forcing him to find a new way to compete in his favorite game. He now plays table tennis with a racket in his mouth, swatting at balls with a flick of his head. He was specially invited to the ZEN-NOH 2014 World Team Table Tennis Championships in Tokyo by International Table Tennis Federation President Adham Sharara.


In an interview in the video, Hamato says, “Nothing is impossible as long as you work hard.“ Words to live by.

So what is stopping you from achieving your goals?
