Ai Fukuhara Playing Ping Pong On Japanese TV Show Aged 5

Ai Fukuhara child prodigy ping pong

Ai Fukuhara is a Japanese table tennis player who won a silver medal at the London 2012 Olympics. She began playing aged 3 and only two years later appeared on a Japanese TV show playing against the host and just beating him. What is brilliant in this video is her clear passion for ping pong. When she drops a few basic points and is trailing, she gets tearful and tries to hide behind her paddle. Then her Uberpong style kicks in and she wins.
