they have no land to play football so they suck at it, but ping pong can be played indoors despite the population congestion, so everybody plays and talent is easy to spot.

It's because they are fond of little bats and have small balls.

Define 'extremely' ....

 

'cause all Asians are good at it. Japs were on the top before China relaxed the Great Wall ... and there are brazillion of Chinese, so ain't that difficult to have few no.1's.

I know the country in EU, which is on the top spot in the world (percentage wise) by the no. of the highest Himalayan peaks their residents climbed .. Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu and more ... buTT ... mentioned country has less than 2M residents ...

 

Other thing I'd say, it's a physical constitution, i.e. LeBron James can't be too good at ping 'cause he's too tall.

Because you can send your kids to ping pong schools that force them to play from early morning to late at night, only interupted by some normal school

We have sports schools for it and parents send kids to train, just like soccer schools or baseball camps in other countries.
But other countries have produced ping pong talent too like a former Swedish player (named Voldenir? Not sure)
Norwegians are also great at shuttle lock (羽毛球)... So, you tell me why.

You know, the name 'ping pong' sounds a bit racist. Perhaps referring to it as table tennis might be more WOKE if you are into that sort of perversion.

Well here's something more pervert, check that out (https://b23.tv/aSaJzj). Apparently some Chinese wanted to impress his partner, so he made a table tennis machine.
Surely, the core of the technology came from the West (it must have been, and Chinese stole it lol.)

The answer is very simple. Think about why Americans are so good at basketball.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
