Meet The Lad Who Plays Table Tennis With His Mouth
Ladies and gentlemen, meet Ibrahim Hamato, the inspirational table tennis player who hasn't let the fact he has no arms stop him from playing the sport he loves.
The 41-year-old Paralympian lost both of his arms in a train accident at the age of 10, but that didn't stop him from pursuing his dream of becoming a pro.
He improvised with his mouth and now grips the bat with his teeth, hitting the ball with a ridiculous amount of power.
Ibrahim continues to spread the word that nothing is impossible if you try hard enough
"I want to tell everybody that nothing is impossible, and everybody should work hard for what you love and what you think is good for yourself," Hamadtou told the Paralympics website
"The disability is not in arms or legs, the disability is to not persevere in whatever you would like to do."
