We’re definitely team human, but does he stand a chance against the robot?!
Robot maker Kuka pitted the fastest robot in the world, their Agilus model, against table tennis legend Timo Boll in a ping pong battle royale!
When things started out, it looked like Kuka had Boll’s number, running the score up 6-0! But then Boll made a shocking comeback!

Ok…so maybe it's just a friendly game of table tennis for a boy who wants to play with his cat.
But his kitty has other ideas….HE PLAYS FOR KEEPS!!!!
In the basement championship ping pong tournament, it's a heavy hitting match of cuteness between the two competitors.
Who's the most aDORable??? Our money is on that pussy!

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!

It was a good fight but a talented athlete in Olympic men's table tennis stands alone the winner.
Except for the men to his left and right. (The silver and bronze winners.)
We mean stands alone the overall winner, the man with the gold medal!
He defeated his opponent 4-1!
He won the match in front of a surprisingly huge crowd for table tennis: a sold-out 6,000 seat venue!
So who took home the gold??

That looks like so much fun — from both perspectives.
Playing ping-pong with a cat acting as a living net, trying to swat the ball gives the game an extra challenge.
We'd also totally love to

Ah well! Anna's always got her table tennis! Ha!
Back in September, Anna Kournikova opened up about being hired as a new trainer for The Biggest Loser, and she made it clear that she did the show to help "people change their lives for the better."
While she may have helped some people improve their lives on the show, we're also hearing that she clashed with both staffers and contestants….and as a result, she won't be returning for the show's next season.
Here's what Anna had to say about it in a statement:
