Forrest Gump. Doesn’t ring a bell? Forrest Gump is the 1994 filming of a novel with Tom Hanks in the lead role – one of the most successful films of that year. What does he have to do with table tennis?

The film may have gathered a bit of dust by now, but it has a fantastic table tennis scene. After the scene, Tom Hanks proves he would surely be a top talent candidate for the LMC.

Watch the clip and then take a look at the “making-of.”
