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.

LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) — The IOC has sanctioned three boxers – two from Ireland and one from Britain – for betting on fights at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
The International Olympic Committee issued “severe reprimands” to Ireland’s Michael Conlan and Steve Donnelly and Britain’s Antony Fowler for violating the rules that prohibit betting.
None of the boxers won medals.
The IOC says all three placed bets on fights at the games, but adds that “there was no intent to manipulate any event.”
Athletes and officials are banned from betting on Olympic events and required to report any approach or suspicion of fixing.
The IOC says, in order to be eligible to compete in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, the three boxers must undergo an “educational program.”
The Irish and British national Olympic committees also received reprimands for “not having properly informed” their athletes of the betting rules.
