Hi, i am a passionate table tennis player,i play for a club , i dream of competing in the olympics and being professional. i am 13 years of age and have only played table tennis for only 4 months. i train twice a week putting in about 6 hours, i really want to follow my dream , ever since london 2012 ive been inspired more than ever to follow this, we only get 1 chance at life but i find it hard to put this dream into reality.

so my question is this......can i make it from only starting table tennis at 13 and playing for only 4 months. will i make it to the top. is my dream possible.

Hi Max,

Yes your dream is possible.  It is something worth chasing and if you chase it with everything you have got, you can't go wrong, because then whether you reach the ultimate goal or not, you have done your best.

You are doing the right thing by playing in a club and putting in good hours.  Now make sure every minute of your training is productive.

i hope to see you soon.........................i have been inspired by the london 2012 olympics and whatever anyone says to me i shall never give up. even if i havent made it i shall be proud of my self that i gave it my all to get this far.

remember to suceed is to fail.

failure is an opputunity to begin again more intelligently

yeah you're right

table tennis is not popular in my town so it's hard to me to find the club
i try to go to one place and to other place to search it and it took 2 weeks for me ! after all now i have got a club... i'm ready now !

anyway, i'm inspired PingSkills as before i know pingskills i just play table tennis for fun

Well Max it is possible,

im 14 years old and i play table tennis for half a year now and 

so far i've won 2 tournaments and I follow special training for 

talented people (including the #1 & #2 from my country)

Next year im gonna play National C that means i need to play all over my country

So if your ambition for table tennis is very big then YES your dream is possible
