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.

But you know I suck at ping pong big time, in college I was beaten by an Indian guy. *_*

Nice racist comment to your own answer. And you are so deeply entrenched in prejudice that you can't even recognise it. That is sad.

Simply false accusation. To think that Indian people aren't traditionally good at ping pong and that Chinese are, is not racist. You sure can find fault in everything ;) By your standard the URL of this website is even racist. Good on you.

Wang Wang Wang, I simply call a spade a spade. I understand that little emperor bullies never get called out on anything. Sorry snowflake, I'm not here to piss in your pocket. If you can't stand the truth go home and cry to your mommy but for fu@k's sake, stop whining and dragging out excuses and denial of the obvious.

Your racism is so deeply ingrained that due to a complete absence of self-awareness and total refusal to indulge in self-critique that you don't even know you are wayyyyy on the side of others who promoted the Master Race ideology. You have clearly demonstrated your racist and xenophobic beliefs in several other answers. There are few things more amusing than a racist who doesn't recognise he is. Thanks for the comedy Adolf.

Did you know Adolf wasn't racist at first? They were Joos who started with murdering Germans living in Poland in 1933.

Have a look at 'Europa-The Last Battle, 2017 documentary. No fiction, all facts with newspaper cut-offs and more  ...

I am on Part 5 ... and Hitler only wanted better for Krouts. He wasn't after Joos until that pogrom against Krouts in Poland.

It's not that I believe into it, but I become sceptic about the whole 2nd WW history taught ...

Yes, he started as an idealist but grabbed the racist agenda with both hands. I suppose extreme nationalism fosters racism and provides an excuse for any behaviour against outsiders (waiguoren).

Did you happen to see the recent discussion calling for citizen input regarding a restructuring of permanent residency or greencards? Wow! The tsunami of hate towards foreigners, especially Africans, that shamelessly came from that showed the writing in the wall. It was shameless vitriolic racism at its best or worst if you aren't Chinese. And seriously, who would want a greencard for China? The tax and benefit liabilities from your own country for accepting this make it a bad idea, unless you are on the run.... Hahaha

Sandnose what you've complained about is partly true, but this is a thread about ping pong ball. Obviously your mental diarrhea can't stop you from walking into every bedroom and start shaitting in beds hahahaha!

Get better soon and get a life.

Sandnose:

Hahaha. Nice burn. But it's called Ping Pong. Ping Pong ball is the little white thing that looks like a tiny egg from a rare and exotic species of bird usually found in a wet market in Wuhan. And no, you can't eat them. you hit them with the bat as part of the game (it is not a sport) .

Yes I know it's difficult for you to grasp and may make you angry but you can't make soup from this type of bat either.

. Fun Fact: Ping-Pong is a trademark name for table tennis and associated equipment. The name “Ping-Pong” was invented by the English firm J. Jaques and Son at the end of the 1800s and later trademarked in the United States by Parker Brothers, the board game company.

Well, you got that right.

Point at the mulberry tree and curse the locust tree. Stupid idiom. However, I think you have a bamboo tree in your chest. I don't know what you're whinging about or why you want to portray yourself as a victim continuously. Let me get you a tissue.

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.
