Olympic Dreams - Paul Drinkhall

Age 17, Table tennis
Born Middlesbrough, plays for Ormsby Club

Drinkhall is GB's number one, Europe's top junior and wants to repeat the efforts of his hero Roger Federer and dominate his sport.

Inspired by his grandfather's exploits in a local league, Drinkhall was in the England squad aged nine, going on to win medals at national, European and world level.

Last year he even had three match points against reigning Olympic champ Ryu Seung Min of South Korea, and with Drinkhall training extensively in China, don't rule out a successful trip to Beijing in 2008.
