ping pong prodigies headed to world championships

You know who's awesome? 13-year-old Ariel Hsing and 12-year-old Lily Zhang, two youngsters who will be representing the United States next week at the 2009 World Table Tennis Championships in Yokohama, Japan: U.S. Child Prodigies will Compete at the World Championships.

Lily, the youngest U.S. table tennis team member in history, was named as the "Coaches Selection" to fill the 4th position on the women's team: Lily Zhang becomes Youngest US Team Member in History.

These two take their ping pong seriously. Here's a YouTube video of both Ariel and Lily playing each other at the 2008 U.S. Nationals: 2008 U.S. Nationals - L. Zhang vs. A. Hsing - game 5. Awesome. And good luck. (Thanks, Jojo.)
