Lee Ming Yip, Disabled table tennis player
I suddenly fainted with playing basketball at school when I was 15 years old. My ability to move was severely affected after confirmed by hospital to have hemorrhagic stroke due to brain congenital malformations of vascular burst. I was forced to stop beloved table tennis for the sake of re-learning how to stand and train up my immoveable left hand.
After 4 years of stroke, I started to use "Hands of Hope" to perform rehabilitation therapy for my left hand at home. After several years of rehabilitation, I was able to represent the Hong Kong team to attend the National Games for the Disabled in Sichuan Chengdu last year and I was awarded Men’s Table Tennis Singles Silver.
At present the left hand has resumed general ability to move, I hope to get tickets for the Paralympic Games this year and can be as normal people to coordinate left and right hand for the serve!
