This is 1 of 2 video clips I produced from this informal "harbat" ping pong challenge between Tebow and US ping pong pro, Trevor Runryon. This clip is a close up showing Tebow getting "schooled". The other clip is the full game shot from the second level balcony looking down on the table. This clip is 6 minutes long and in the last 1 minute you will see a cool ping pong demo between the UK and France pros.

This is all original content recorded on my iPhone in Vegas.

WHO?
Tim Tebow, NFL Quarterback Denver Broncos (short sleeve grey shirt, black pants)
Trevor Runyon, US Air Force Cadet AND US Pro Ping Pong Champ (military haircut, green jersey, grey pants)
Paul Drinkhall, United Kingdom Pro Ping Pong Champ (long sleeved shirt and navy pants)
Marcos Madrid, Mexico Pro Ping Pong Champ (green jersey, black pants)

WHAT?
Denver Broncos NFL Quarterback and three of the worlds top international professional ping pong players (USA, UK, MES) got together in Vegas for a friendly 'HARBAT" ping pong match and demonstration.

What's "Harbat"? It's is old-school ping pong played with sandpaper surfaced hard paddles that reduce SPIN and increase SPEED, and rapid multiple VOLLEYS (faster than Forrest Gump!)

WHERE?
Hardwood Suite (basketball suite) at the Palms Casino Resort, Las Vegas

WHEN?
6:30PM Tuesday 8th February 2011 (two days after the Super Bowl)

WHY?
First 3 min 36 sec: Tim Tebow (of the Denver Broncos) and his younger brother play ping pong regularly (they have two tables back home). Tebow stayed in Las Vegas at the Palms Casino on the same night as the conclusion of the World Championship Ping Pong tournament. 16 international pro players competed for two days in the Pearl Concert Theater (for broadcast on Fox Sports Net). As evidenced by his stellar faceoff against US Champ, Trevor Runyon that night, Tebow is a REALLY GOOD ping pong player. He is also a good sport, for allowing us to hang out in his suite and watch the action.

Last 1 min 14 sec are a spectacular demonstration match between Paul Drinkhall (UK) and Marcos Madrid (MEX). They hit hard and fast, long and short, high and low, and even between their legs. Impressive coordination and athleticism gentleman!
