This is incredible. 48 year old Egyptian Paralympian Ibrahim Hamadtou who lost his arms in a train accident aged 10 in Tokyo today. Could have played football but took up table tennis “as a challenge.” How inspiring is this? (via @Ch4Paralympics) pic.twitter.com/ONB59KwgVD

Egyptian Paralympian Ibrahim Hamadtou is as inspirational as they come.
Hamadtou is competing at the Paralympics in Tokyo, and a clip of him in competition has gone viral. Hamadtou lost his arms in a train accident when he was just 10 years old, but he never let that slow him down.
Rather than playing football (soccer), Hamadtou decided he wanted a “challenge” and took up table tennis.
Now, at 48 years old, he is representing his country and inspiring the world.
