WATCH: Armless ping-pong player knows 'nothing is impossible'

Ibrahim Hamato is an Egyptian ping-pong player without arms.

Come again? 

At 10, Hamato suffered a serious accident, but that wasn’t enough to keep him from the table, as he’s adapted by holding the paddle between his teeth. Between his teeth. If that's not incredible enough, he tosses the ball up for a serve using his right foot. Watch carefully at the :30 second mark. 

Hamato recently visited the table tennis championships in Tokyo as a guest of the International Table Tennis Federation's president, which is where this video comes from.

“After trying different options, I found myself playing with my mouth. The best thing in my life is my wife, who is everything to me. The second part is table tennis where I find my biggest success being able to enjoy every point I win. Nothing is impossible as long as you work hard.”

Sorry, Kevin Garnett, looks like Adidas just found a new pitch man.
