Back in September, a video was posted to YouTube of a ping-pong player by the name of Ibrahim Elhoseny playing at the 2011 African Table Tennis Championships.

The clip shows the Egyptian winning a point against his opponent which under normal circumstances wouldn’t be anything incredibly special except for the fact that Ibrahim doesn’t have any arms.

As the below video documents, Ibrahim uses his mouth to hold and control the paddle. For Ibrahim to serve, he uses his foot to toss the ball up into the air:

Tip of the hat to you Mr. Elhoseny, you are truly an astounding person.
