While most of us may just amble through life without ever finding out our true potential, there are those rare blessed few who manage to have it cracked when they are barely a few months old.
Want a living example!!! Then check out this prodigious toddler with a deft hand, hitting out at almost all table tennis balls accurately, which would put even a TT pro to shame.
This table tennis playing toddler Jamie Myskova-Buddell from Plymouth has become a viral hit after a video footage of his repertoire of ping-pong skills were uploaded to YouTube.
The footage shows little Jamie sitting up serenely on a table-tennis table clutching a bat a few inches from the net, as balls are being served to him by his trainer dad Kevin Buddell, 45.
Jamie occasionally takes his eye off the ball, but remarkably with uncanny accuracy hits most of the balls right back at his father.
The tiny tot shows off his impressive array of backhands and smashes but most importantly he seems to be enjoying himself, gurgling away throughout the ping-pong session.
The video was posted just last month (Jan 2012) with the single caption line "Couldn't keep Jamie away from the table." It has now gone on to become a online sensation having been viewed more than half a million times and still continuing.
Say Kevin Buddell "We did it as a bit of fun for Jamie and now everyone is raving about it - the Americans absolutely love it," he added. Meanwhile the family is facing a deluge of international media requests, with even television legend Ellen DeGeneres desperate for them to appear on her chat show.
