Amazing Paralympic Ping Pong Diving Save

| Filed under: InspirationParalympics


What a ridiculous shot!

Disabled British ping pong player David Wetherill was playing Thomasz Kusiak from Germany.

They were in the middle of a good volley when the German worked Wetherill to one side of the table and then smacked the ball to the other.

No one expected Wetherill to dive out to save the ball and we're sure even less expected him to actually get the ball back on the table!

So did the German return it? Or did Wetherill get the point?

Check out the video (above) to find out!

Prince Harry Canoodles With Paralympians

| Filed under: Royals RoyceParalympicsPrince Harry


Prince Harry kept it in his pants long enough to make a public appearance at the Paralympics! Ha!

He was spotted hanging out with several Paralympians, including Jessica-Jane Applegate.

Applegate won the gold medal in swimming in the controversial intellectually disabled classification.

The classification has been controversial since Spain had a gold medal winning team at Sydney in 2000 where none of the players had any intellectual impairment and one was even a professional basketball player!

That's awful!

Applegate actually has Asperger's syndrome, which is on the autism spectrum, so she was legit!

Losers (like Spain's cheater team) get embarrassed and are awful, winners get to meet Prince Harry!

Way to go, Paralympians!
