Meet An Armless Table Tennis Player Who Doesn't Just Compete: He Wins

Nothing can stop this guy.

Ibrahim Hamato was just ten years old when he lost both of his arms in a train accident, but that didn't stop him from pursuing his love of table tennis.

Although the Egyptian-born table tennis star has won the silver medal in the African Para Table Tennis Championships, he's also competed against conventionally abled champions, including the number two player in the world, Ma Long.

"I want to tell them and tell everybody that nothing is impossible," Hamato told the International Table Tennis Federation regarding skeptics, "and everybody should work hard for what you love and what you think is good for yourself."


"The disability is not in arms or legs, the disability is to not persevere in whatever you would like to do."
