18-Year-Old Long Island Ping Pong Prodigy Hopes To Become An OlympianMrs. Ella Wattson April 14, 2019 0 COMMENTS
A teenager from Long Island celebrates a big victory in a small courtroom.
She beat her competitors across the country at table tennis, observing a religious fast.

The road from Landers to London has hardly begun. A broken arm turned the “typical little American” into a ping pong prodigy.
Landers, one of the youngest Long Island table tennis players
“I did a lot of football, hockey, sneakers, basketball and when I was a child, the sport was too easy for me.” “When I broke my left arm all summer, Landers and his father learned about this ping-pong club in Flushing [Queens] so we went there and checked in. With my arm broken, I have a course taught, and I liked it. ”
It was not long before Landers realized she had the talent for table tennis. While most children of their age feared to go to high school, Landers was recognized as a national player.
Landers, however, said Hinse had changed tack after being left behind.
“He played well and adapted well,” Landers said. “I lost some light balls in the last game, I can not do much for the moment.”
Now, LG should try to jump and secure one of the last two Olympic Games places.
Landers started playing table tennis at the age of two but did not play the game until she was ten years old. She then broke his left arm and played hide-and-seek. Since then, she has traveled the world to perfect his game. At the age of fifteen, she was the youngest female champion in the United States and the best player of the Olympic Games in the United States in February.
