Ibrahim Hamato: Amazing Table Tennis Player

At the age of 10, Ibrahim Hamato suffered a terrible accident which caused the loss of both of his arms. He had loved the game of table tennis and though it would seem pretty hopeless that he'd be able to ever enjoy it again, three years after the accident Ibrahim began experimenting with ways he could possibly do so.

He tried holding the paddle under what remained of his arm, but it didn't really work. He then tried using his mouth, and with a great deal of effort and patience, he found that this worked for him. Over time Ibrahim became quite good. So good that he even competes in tournaments run by the International Table Tennis Federation. 

This year Ibrahim was a guest of honor at the 2014 World Team Table Tennis Championships in Tokyo.  Here you can see him playing with some of the best in the world.

Swimming the Dream

Dreams don't just come true because you want them to. It takes determination and hard work. You have to push yourself to go further than you've ever gone before. Jane Petkov knows what I'm talking about. He had a dream. A dream to do something no one else in the world had ever done before. A dream to swim further than any man had before, while tied up in a bag.

The record breaking attempt happened on September 11, 2013 on Lake Orhid, in Macedonia. Wrapped in an orange bag with his arms and legs strapped to his body, it took Petkov 2 hours and 55 minutes to swim the 2 kilometers (1.25 miles) to shore“I was very cold for the first kilometer but after that it was all fine, no problem whatsoever, “he said.”Had the water been warmer, I could have swum 10km or more.”

The event was filmed from a life boat and the footage sent to Guinness World Records.
