Ariel Hsing Puts on a Show for Bill Gates

American 16-year-old Ariel Hsing certainly impressed her friend Bill Gates — she calls him "Uncle Bill" — who slipped into the venue at the ExCel arena almost unnoticed to watch her play in the third round of Olympic table tennis. With Gates sitting in the bleachers on Sunday wearing a peach sweater and blue baseball cap, Hsing nearly pulled of one of biggest upsets in Olympic table tennis history, pushing one of the gold-medal favorites in women's singles — China's Li Xiaoxia — to the limit before losing the best-of-seven match in six tight games — 11-4, 9-11, 11-6, 6-11, 11-8, 11-9.

Comment............Just a great story...16 years old. What a future! I don't know her but I am proud of this kid...
