Spread the love for Table Tennis!

We have seen the American superhero Spider-Man jumping off buildings, swinging over the bustling streets of Manhattan, saving his love interest Mary Jane and of course, the world, among anything else a superhuman would do. But just this week, he was seen playing table tennis. That makes Andrew Garfield a truly Amazing Spider-Man.   

Sohu Sports. With the nearing of the release of the Amazing Spider-Man 2, lead actor Andrew Garfield, along with his co-stars and director visited Beijing just recently not just to promote their movie but also to play table tennis. 

The first lady of the United States of America, Michelle Obama, had her photos playing table tennis out last week during her week-long visit to Beijing. The American first lady visited schools and had first-hand experience on some Chinese traditions like calligraphy, tai chi, table tennis, among others. The visit aimed for strengthening the relationship of China and the America through education and cultural exchanges.

This week, another American public figure was seen playing table tennis also in Beijing and he is the Amazing Spider-Man himself, Andrew Garfield. Together with his co-stars, Emma Stone and Jamie Fox, director Marc Webb, among others arrived in Beijing for their press tour on the Amazing Spider-Man 2. 

During the press conference held last March 25, Andrew Garfield revealed that table tennis is one of his favourite sports. In fact, he competed against a Chinese girl in a table tennis match. Result? the Amazing Spider-Man won one but lost in 10 sets.

Lastly, Andrew Garfield hoped to learn more of the sport from Chinese female athletes. I wonder if Mary Jane would approve of the "female" athletes.
