This great video shows exactly why adversity should never stop you from doing what you want.

Ibrahim Hamato of Egypt had an accident when he was younger that meant that he lost both of his arms, and as a result had to stop playing table tennis, a game that he loved. 

Was he going to let that stop him, though? Absolutely not, and after experimenting with a few different ways of playing the game, he found that it worked best if he put the paddle in his mouth, and he was able to get back to the table.


This video was shot in Japan, where he was invited to watch the world championship by the ITTF President Adham Shahara, as well as to tell his unique story. It didn't hurt that he showed off a few skills while he was there either, check out that spin move!
