An incredible rally between Singapore's Ning Gao and Nigeria's Segun Toriola stunned fans in Glasgow this past week at the semi-final stage.
Toriola, who is ranked at No.12 in the world, put on a quite ridiculous defence against his opponent, which finally led to the Nigerian claiming the point after a Gao mistake. Fans of table tennis would have been in shock at some of the quite outstanding returns from the Nigerian, as he was on the back foot throughout the rally.
Toriola was certainly pleased to win the point, as he clenched his fists with joy. His happiness didn't last long, however, as he was eventually beaten by Gao, who secured the victory and secured a place in the final for Singapore.
The wonderful rally between the two semi-finalists can be seen here:
The final result in favour of Gao read: 11-7, 11-8, 9-11, 7-11, 11-9, which help set Singapore up for a final clash with England.
And, Gao and Co. eventually secured Gold with a victory over the English, as they prevailed 3-1 against Liam Pitchford, Paul Drinkhall and Andrew Baggaley in the final. Singapore may not have won the battle in the best rally of the Games, but they did win the war.
