    Born in Palma de Mallorca in Spain’s Balearic Islands, 23 year old Jorge Lorenzo lives life in the fast lane.

    He is a professional motorcycle road racer.


    In 2006 and 2007 he was crowned 2006 and 2007 World Champion in the 250cc category and currently he heads the MotoGP Class for the Factory Yamaha Team, having one year ago finished in runners up spot behind the celebrated Valentino Rossi.

    Recently, he tried his hand at another sport that demands the quick reactions of a motorcycle road racer and speed of a different nature. No, not cricket! He played table tennis.

    Visited Orphanage
    He visited the children of the Sant Josep de la Muntanya Orphanage in Barcelona, an organisation that has just received a table tennis table, four rackets and balls from “Club Falcons Sabadell”.

    The club is very successful, especially the table tennis section, which has won a host of titles under the leadership of Pere Weisz, former Spanish Champion and he is seeking to win the Super Division of the Spanish League in the 2010-2011 season.

    Table Tennis Demonstration
    He has signed Li Dan Dan, Ferran Brugada and Ramon Mampel; strong contenders but like Jorge Lorenzo, they have visited the orphanage to play table tennis against the children.

    Change Sports
    Now, I wonder if they would like to change places with Jorge Lorenzo; well, watching the way he crashed in 2008 at the Chinese Grand Prix and the United States Grand Prix I suggest they stick to table tennis.

    He travelled faster than his motorbike; he left it behind as he sailed through the air!

    Great Reward
    Somehow he survived, world title have come his way, great rewards but was there any better reward than seeing the smiles on the children’s faces at the Sant Josep de la Muntanya Orphanage?

    I doubt it.
