Lebanon - Ping Pong Dreams (HD) - 7 min 30 sec (30 July 2012)  

Tucked away in a corner of Beirut, an Armenian family is preparing for the Olympics. In this charming film they show us how their obsession with ping pong has taken them from their small shop to the big Games.

"The electricity has gone again", dedicated father Raffi laughs, as his ping pong obsessed family prepare for their biggest challenge yet: taking eldest daughter Tvine to the London Olympics. With no national sponsorship and a shop to run, it has been a struggle."We didn't expect anything from anybody. We do it ourselves." Can Tvine achieve her family's dream of success?
