Man with no arms is a ping pong champion

Ibrahim Hamadto is a man who has no arms. He lost his arms when he was seven in a train accident.  Ibrahim loves table tennis, so when he was 10 his dad taught him how to play table tennis with his mouth. "In our village, we could only play, at that time, table tennis and soccer, that's why I played both," Ibrahim comes from Kafr Saad, Egypt. 
Starting at age 13, Ibrahim worked hard to get to where he is now.  People are very proud of him and his athletic abilities. Hamadto is married and has three kids. He has won several honor awards.  "Ibrahim is a very nice man with faith and perseverance," said Alaa Meshref, the president of Egyptian Table Tennis. "People without disabilities should learn more from him." 
"I believe that nothing is impossible, as long as you work hard," said Ibrahim "This is the message I would like to send to people."
