    Table Tennis Shouldn't be an Olympic Sport
    Table Tennis (i.e., ping pong as you call it) when played at the highest levels such as in the Olympics requires the same elite athletic ability as any other sport in the Olympics. The sport itself is one of the fastest racket sports with the ball sometimes moving close to 100 mph. Moreover, it is one of the most technical racket sports requiring precision strokes, lighting reflexes, ballet-style movement, endurance, and strength. Just ask the Chinese coaches what they put their athletes through. Before you open your mouth and criticize something you don't know anything about I suggest you do some research - now that's a core value.
