The Best Table Tennis Shot You'll See All Day

I know, I know. You're already completely swamped with table tennis highlights from all over. But trust me on this, you're going to want to see this one. You might even want to skip out on the "25 Hilarious Skydiving GIFs!" slideshow to make time for this.

The below video comes to our attention via Reid Cherner of USA Today (by way of Yardbarker). It features David Wetherill, a Paralympic athlete from Great Britain. In his recent match against Thomasz Kusiak of Germany, he made this amazing, diving shot. The commentary really takes it to another level.

Wetherill took to Twitter after the match to share in the fun.

Diving shot rumours? A Wetherill does not dive! He floats gracefully to the floor. Its hard to fall when u float like a Wetherill #SUPERWETH

I say "may never play a shot like it ever again". But knowing me, I probably will. #ProudParalympian #watchout

As always, tongue's in my cheek for that tweet. Isn't everyones tongues in their cheeks? You never know with Paralympians. #ProudParalympian

This video will likely net Wetherill plenty of new followers! Good to see that he's having a ball with this newfound fame. But if he keeps up these jokes, he may be in line for a paddling.
