Blog Photo - Ping Pong players challenge Robert Griffin IIIEver since even before he was an All-American track athlete at Baylor, Robert Griffin III has had Olympic aspirations.

Now that he's an NFL quarterback, those dreams will have to be put on the shelf for a while. But still, he says he wants to make the Olympics someday. He even joked that he'd be willing to give it a shot as a ping-pong player, if that's what it took.

It seemed like he was belittling the sport just a bit, and that didn't sit well with a few young ping-pong phenoms, who made this video challenging RG3, saying that he'd have to go through them if he wanted any chance of Olympic fame.

As much as I respect RG3's athleticism, I don't think he really knew what he was getting himself into. These kids are 11, 12, 14 and 17, and I think they'd absolutely wipe the floor with RG3 in a ping-pong match.
