Watch the world’s greatest ping-pong shot of all time, ever
At the 2012 Paraplegic Games in London (which occurred very shortly after the Big Time Olympics) there was quite a magnificent shot in the ping pong finals. David Wetherill may not have full use of his left arm and legs but he performs one of the best shots I’ve ever seen, and lord knows I’ve seen a lot of ping-pong matches since my birth mother abandoned me on the steps of a YMCA some 28 years ago. But I digress. David’s shot is certainly a feat in and of itself; he didn’t go on to win the game, but this has to be the shot of the year in the ping pong community.
David tweeted after the shot:
Thanks! Table Tennis is an instinctive sport, may never play a shot like it ever again. Fight for every point, was never letting that one go
