Top Scorer in Table Tennis

image

Alex, an eighth-grader at Central Middle, is determined to go to the Olympics in table tennis. He continues to rack up some of the highest scores in the nation in his age group. At one recent tournament, he outmaneuvered players from 10 other countries.

Alex trains vigorously for the sport, even though it isn’t that popular in the U.S. He typically practices more than 3 hours a day at home after school and trains outside his house with a jump rope, in addition to doing 50 push-ups and 200 sit-ups after finishing dinner and homework.
