If you have been following ping pong on the world stage, I'm sure you know who Tomokazu Harimoto is.
He is a table tennis prodigy who is already a decorated player at 13 years old. He has been breaking records and defeating more experienced players left and right!
He was born to parents who also competed and coached so it was not surprising that he has the talent. And he started playing at 2 years old.
My son is 5. He sometimes comes with me at work. We also play at home. Skill can be acquired and polished through time but I can say that the form and the interest are there.
Of course, I will be most thrilled if he decides to take up the sport seriously. But as with other parents, I will just be happy to support him in whatever he decides to pursue.
