The Commonwealth Games provided a 41-shot table tennis rally and a 59-shot badminton rally Monday. The table tennis made it onto YouTube, while the badminton lives on the BBC’s website (video available to UK users).

The table tennis rally came in the men’s team semifinals. Nigeria’s Segun Toriola won the epic point, but Gao Ning won the best-of-five match, helping Singapore advance and ultimately win the gold medal.

Table tennis has also provided two memorable celebrations of the Commonwealth Games. Those would be Scotland’s Gavin Rumgay‘s wedgie and Nigeria’s Ojo Onaolapo pulling his shorts down.
