He will be his own dynasty when the time comes. People always say he might lack power when he grow up. They are wrong. People assume Hari is japanese but he is actually chinese. He is a genetic freak.

Harimoto is the most genetically gifted table tennis player ever grace the earth. Both his parents are from CNT. There's only 32 adult members in CNT in any given time. Harimoto is a product of 32/1.37billion ^ 2. He is one out of 1.85 every quadrillion. 

For those who don't understand let's do a breakdown and look at his parents. 

China, similar to Russia a communist country select their sportsman base on a very particulari= regimen. What does that mean? Well, when a kid is to be admitted to a sport school, they will get an body inspection. They will gauge any physical issues, and depending on the result the kid will be admitted to different programs or not being admitted at all. Bow leg? too bad not admitted, your parents too short? well you are assign to gymnastics. From then on, the scout will pick the kids with good hand eye coordination and assign them to sports correlate to it, and table tennis is one of them. Among the kids assigned to table tennis, the sports school will pick the one learns the fastest and ship them to a more concentrated camp with reference letter. From then on, the kids needs to keep battling for a chance to get admitted to a professional table tennis club (e.g like luneng). If they are fortunate enough to get into a professional TT club, they still have to battle for a place to get to the main club. Luneng have 3 branches, 2 sister branches and 1 main branch. Every few month they have a league to determine who get promoted from sister branch to main branch etc... etc...  So once the kid get himself into the main branch, he will have to keep battling to show promise to get coaches attention; if the kid is lucky/gifted/parents enough money enough, the kid will get a reference from the coach and get a chance to trial for CNT team. If they do good they will get admitted to the CNT team; and again CNT is the same thing like the professional club, but instead of getting a reference to trial for CNT team you will get a chance to rep china in tournament and slowly build your resume till you are the next malong/FZD/ZJK. If you don't make it.... then.....


We get Harimoto's parents. Both his mother and father have been through this mini national selection for table tennis; and Harimoto is a product of that. 


tl;dr
Harimoto will have no issues building strength. He will be bigger, faster and stronger than any of you could imagine. He is 14 years old and his legs are already thicker than some of the JNT members. On top of that he lives in japan where the meat and food are more refine compare to china. Not only he will have better genetics, he will have better nutrition. Unlike FZD/ML, which many believe they surface at the age of 16. CNT fake their age by -3 so FZD/ML show up at the age of 19. Harimoto is actually dominating the game at the age of 14, it's unheard of and it's the first in history.

Well fair enough, but my point is that there aren't as many significant recent developments compared to that of Harimoto. Of course, we could make a mega thread, but nobody has, so my point still stands.

There are already 100 threads about Ma Long, 120 about JZK, 80 for FZD, etc., etc.  Given that the kid's just knocked off three top CNT players in a row - including ML who some consider to be the GOAT - it's hardly surprising there's a whole slew of HT topics.

Apart from Hunkeelin's suggestion that HT has a unique genetic advantage, I think the topic's pretty silly.  After all, there's will only ever be one Vladimir Samsonov, one Timo Boll, one Ma Lin, one Wang Liqin, and so on for ever and ever.  Each and every player is unique in some way, shape or form.

I m just expresing my POV unlike you that you want everybody to think wct is overrated making fun of posters who dont agree with you. I never made a disrecpectful coment about anybody who thinks diffrent

I m entittled to think that HT will not win the olympics whether I m wrong or not unlike your childish coments about ML losing to a toddler and obnoxius postings about how overrated is wct .

lets see if HT can repeat the same I can back the argument that several players can beat HT chck calderano pitchford german chopper etc. you want pull an argument from just one tournament

You can deny it, but you did say it.
You are the biggest clown on this forum and you are not even aware of it.

You have been waiting for Harimoto to slip up for a while, but He has already beaten so many top chinsese players. You even said harimoto beat fzd because fzd lost to him on purpose.
Why are you so bitter towards a kid ?
Harimto's outstanding performances have proven the fact that you don't know sh*t about judging a table tennis talent. Keep enjoying your humble pie.

Harimoto is the most genetically gifted table tennis player ever grace the earth. Both his parents are from CNT. There's only 32 adult members in CNT in any given time. Harimoto is a product of 32/1.37billion ^ 2. He is one out of 1.85 every <span style="color: rgb34, 34, 34; font-family: Roboto, arial, sans-serif; font-size: small;">quadrillion. 

For those who don't understand let's do a breakdown and look at his parents. </span>
<span style="color: rgb34, 34, 34; font-family: Roboto, arial, sans-serif; font-size: small;">
</span>
China, similar to Russia a communist country select their sportsman base on a very particulari= regimen. What does that mean? Well, when a kid is to be admitted to a sport school, they will get an body inspection. They will gauge any physical issues, and depending on the result the kid will be admitted to different programs or not being admitted at all. Bow leg? too bad not admitted, your parents too short? well you are assign to gymnastics. From then on, the scout will pick the kids with good hand eye coordination and assign them to sports correlate to it, and table tennis is one of them. Among the kids assigned to table tennis, the sports school will pick the one learns the fastest and ship them to a more concentrated camp with reference letter. From then on, the kids needs to keep battling for a chance to get admitted to a professional table tennis club (e.g like luneng). If they are fortunate enough to get into a professional TT club, they still have to battle for a place to get to the main club. Luneng have 3 branches, 2 sister branches and 1 main branch. Every few month they have a league to determine who get promoted from sister branch to main branch etc... etc...  So once the kid get himself into the main branch, he will have to keep battling to show promise to get coaches attention; if the kid is lucky/gifted/parents enough money enough, the kid will get a reference from the coach and get a chance to trial for CNT team. If they do good they will get admitted to the CNT team; and again CNT is the same thing like the professional club, but instead of getting a reference to trial for CNT team you will get a chance to rep china in tournament and slowly build your resume till you are the next malong/FZD/ZJK. If you don't make it.... then.....


We get Harimoto's parents. Both his mother and father have been through this mini national selection for table tennis; and Harimoto is a product of that. 


tl;dr
Harimoto will have no issues building strength. He will be bigger, faster and stronger than any of you could imagine. He is 14 years old and his legs are already thicker than some of the JNT members. On top of that he lives in japan where the meat and food are more refine compare to china. Not only he will have better genetics, he will have better nutrition. Unlike FZD/ML, which many believe they surface at the age of 16. CNT fake their age by -3 so FZD/ML show up at the age of 19. Harimoto is actually dominating the game at the age of 14, it's unheard of and it's the first in history. 

Post ERT inspired. 











the amount of VOC you re using is huge


And you said that everyone will figure out harimoto's game and beat him within one year.

We all know you hate harimoto.



we???? who else your little green friends from outer space? I only said that I dont think HT can be world champion. not the twisted hatred that makes you search for stats day and night about wobgchungting   endless endless postings to unleash your bitterness and moderator found you posting from a fake account(same IP)




I m just expresing my POV unlike you that you want everybody to think wct is overrated making fun of posters who dont agree with you. I never made a disrecpectful coment about anybody who thinks diffrent

I m entittled to think that HT will not win the olympics whether I m wrong or not unlike your childish coments about ML losing to a toddler and obnoxius postings about how overrated is wct .

lets see if HT can repeat the same I can back the argument that several players can beat HT chck calderano pitchford german chopper etc. you want pull an argument from just one tournament



You can deny it, but you did say it.
You are the biggest clown on this forum and you are not even aware of it.

You have been waiting for Harimoto to slip up for a while, but He has already beaten so many top chinsese players. You even said harimoto beat fzd because fzd lost to him on purpose.
Why are you so bitter towards a kid ?
Harimto's outstanding performances have proven the fact that you don't know sh*t about judging a table tennis talent. Keep enjoying your humble pie.


biggest clown? you ve been caught posting with fake account sad teenager give me a break that makes you a coward .maybe I m asking too much for a highschool boy but I will wait until you re 18 to make you understand and you quit videogames get a girl ,if you can and maybe one day you will sleep without having nightmares about wonchungting.

btw jacksupreme also said "" oh you re not aware" same IP I guess . the word supreme in a username makes me think you have serious issues I dont want to go on you could end hanging up in a rope

Time for a cool down period. 

One week suspension each for bbkon and jackwong23.

Each will blame the other.  They are both right.

Come back on June 19.

It is impressive how invested people can get into this.

Harimoto plays in an interesting way.  The way he hits his backhand really reminds me how Chuang Chi-Yuan used to when he just burst on the scene and was the fastest guy around.  It is not a flat shot like people say it is.  Harimoto adds a noticeable wrist snap to add spin variation, but it is very quick and very well timed.

One interesting thing about Harimoto is that even among world class table tennis players, who are all gifted, he seems to process information faster than anyone.  Some years ago, they did some tests on Andre Agassi's eye in an attempt to figure out why he can receive serve so well.  It turned out that the secret was in his eyes.  Even among tennis players his ability to process visual information was exceptional.

I suspect that Harimoto's is as well.

Outside of that, his technical ability is getting better all the time, so if he does not burn out he'll be a threat for some time.

I actually believe there will be more Harimoto’s... and yes I do think his style is awesome...

I do mean more of Harimoto’s playing style...

He is an inspiration to youth around the world even though he’s from the region of dominance...

After all, he’s not physically different like Usain Bolt in sprinting that makes every running coach in the world realise they could have lost great 100mtr sprinters by always steering them to 400mtrs...

Harimoto by all accounts is not a unique biological specimen in table tennis and in a different country would probably have become successful in a different sport...

I saw a TV show where he could not do saka-agari (上がり / Back hip circle)  which is something we, the average kids, could do in the first grade of elementary school.  Apart from that, there were other activities that he could not do, which probably means that he was not gifted with good athletic genes (like Nadal).  I hope his success story will inspire many other kids in Japan where table tennis is still looked down upon

MOst TT skills don't translate to other sports so I don't think he could be successful in other sports. Then again athletes from other sports won't be successful in TT, either.

the Agassi analogy is very interesting. It reminds me that test given to formula 1 racers that was available on the Champs Elysees in Paris while they were showing off one of those fast cars: the machine had 8 buttons arranged the same way than 8 dots on a big screen. All those buttons were contained within 4 sf. When a dot was flashing on the screen, the testee had to press the corresponding button. Formula 1 racers all have 100% success on the test. I could do 50% after trying 3 times. It told me a lot about genetics and gifts from mother nature. Those people are special, not freaks, just better wired!

I agree with that. In any sport that fits his body build he would have excelled. Tennis? 100% sure. SUmo? maybe. Just like Frank Zappa would have been great at shooting movies or writing novels. Some people achieve things naturally, they don't need to think too much they just get it, they don't process information and get a result by thinking, the result just appears to them. They are wired in a special way. They still need to work hard to achieve greatness though, let's not forget that.

It is not just genetics.  A lot of this stuff can be developed with proper exercise.  Soviet boxing program did a lot of work on that, and I am sure it is done in other sports. However, if you do not have it, then you do not have it.

As much as I enjoy table tennis, it is not my primary sport.  I am a fairly decent martial artist and I was/am pretty good for an amateur, but as I got better it became immediately apparent that while I could go pro, I would not never be in contention for any championships and the biggest thing that held me back was this same basic business with processing visual information which is why I happen to pay attention to it (and I work with optical systems for a living).

I am stronger, faster and meaner than vast majority of people in my sport.  People like me are basically gatekeepers: if you want to go pro and be successful, you have to be able to make me look like a fool in the ring.  However, when you spend some time in the ring with the guys who are really world class, it is immediately obvious that they see things and adapt to them much faster than most of us.  Once you are fit enough, fast enough and skilled enough, timing is everything.

This is a great post.

Thank you.

I spent some time and looked at a few more of Harimoto's videos.  His technical skills are still developing and will still get better.  There are parts of his game that will need to improve if he wants to get to the top and stay there for a bit.  However, the basic building blocks are all there.  He is mentally, strong, and both technically and strategically sound.

Once he gets into his late teens/early 20s, it will be interesting to see if his mental strength remains as it is.  Kids are often fearless simply because they do not occupy themselves with endless "what-ifs".  As they get older, keeping that mindset gets increasingly harder.  

For the way he plays, being fearless and confident is very helpful.  However, as people learn how to play him, that will not be enough.  

As of right now, from a technical standpoint, one part of his game where he may very well be the best in the world is the way he covers the elbow/switchover point.  Everyone is used to aiming for that spot and Harimoto eats that strategy for breakfast.  One of the reasons Zhang Jike almost beat him, bad back and all is that he did not focus on playing the middle as much.  Harimoto is going to figure out how to construct the point differently once the rest of his opponents stop playing to his strength.
