David Wetherill pretty much dropped the most amazing and bittersweet table tennis shot at the 2012 London Paralympics. Unfortunately, as Metro reports, Wetherill would go on to lose his match, despite having the most memorable volley ever. The 22-year-old had to settle for having the play of the Games after he lost to Italy’s Raimondo Alecci at the ExCel Arena, 3-1. For others, it has to be an amazing shot that took passion, drive and remarkable accuracy to pull off. David Wetherill dives for a shot to his right, leaving his feet for one chance at the point. He then places it perfectly on the other side with a precision that demands you shake your head in disbelief. The video showed David Wetherill from Britain played Thomasz Kusiak from Germany in table tennis at the Paralympic Games. After a good volley, it seemed like Wetherill was too far to the side to rebound after a slam by Kusiak. Then Wetherill unexpectedly dove with nothing to catch his fall and scored the amazing point.
As Metro signals, Wetherill was beyond disappointed about the loss, but he managed to see the charm in having the athletic play of the London Games. At least they might get a few YouTube hits. Wetherill stated that it is practice that you to do, which will help you in knowing the game. A proud Paralympian, David Wetherill may have left the Paralympics without that medal he craved, but he certainly departed with the epic moment of the summer.
