The Expert in a Year Challenge followed the progress of novice table tennis player Sam Priestley during 2014, as he attempted to go from beginner to expert in just one year and break into the top 250 players in England.

The challenge is now finished and I decided to go back through all of the old footage I have of Sam's table tennis and make a 1 Second Everyday video of the entire challenge. It's called '1 Second (Almost) Everyday' because we didn't play every single day of 2014 and also sometimes we would forget or not be able to film.

I hope you enjoy the video. I think it's a great way of displaying Sam's transformation over the year from complete novice to competent player. He may not quite be an 'expert', or have a top 250 ranking, but he's come such a long way during the past 12 months!

    Mind if I ask what his final rating/ranking ended up at the end of the challenge? He clearly improved, but...curious how close he came to breaking top 250 players in England. Minor suggestion, change the wording of the title; there's probably over a million people on the planet who play at least once per day as I don't doubt you've been hearing. Nice video tho.
