Feel His Solid Self-Belief and Fair Play Spirit
At the age of only fifteen in 1996, Timo Boll started his career in Germany’s National Club Championships (Bundesliga), a competition in which the world’s leading players measure their skills against each other. Many top players of the current era employ a topspin counter attacking strategy close to the table. However, Timo Boll did not copy his peers, he innovated. He continuously searched for his own playing style. The result was he created his own trademark offensive topspin play. Starting with a heavy topspin stroke he attacks quickly from either forehand or backhand. His comparatively original style of play soon made him a threat in the table tennis arenas throughout the world.
Furthermore, Timo Boll is widely respected as an athlete who promotes fair play. In 2005 he was awarded the "International Fair Play Prize" donated by the International Fair Play Committee in conjunction with UNESCO.
The reason for the award was his act of fair play at the 2005 Volkswagen 48th World Championships in Shanghai. Of all the athletes in the world the International Fair Play Committee selected Boll from table tennis. Integrity combined with his pleasant personality and outstanding ability in the sport of table tennis make him a favorite wherever he plays.
