Armless Man Ibrahim Hamato Plays Table Tennis By Holding the Paddle in His Mouth

After losing his arms in an accident at age 10, Egyptian table tennis player Ibrahim Hamato was determined to find a way to keep playing his favorite sport. Holding the paddle in his mouth, Hamato has managed to play the sport at a level that lets him compete against pros.

I wanted to play again, holding the racket under my arm, but it didn’t work out. After trying different options, I found myself playing with my mouth.

Hamato was invited by the International Table Tennis Federation as a guest of honor to the ZEN-NOH 2014 World Team Table Tennis Championships in Tokyo, Japan.
