Did you see David Wetherill's fantastic table tennis shot at the Paralympics?

Sept. 4 (UPI) -- We don't see too many table tennis highlights these days, but 22-year-old British Paralympian David Wetherill's rolling dive for the ping pong ball in his match against Germany's Thomasz Kusiak might just be one of the best table tennis shots you'll ever see.

Wetherill suffers from multiple epiphyseal dysplasia, a genetic disorder of the cartilage and bones.

Though Wetherill ultimately lost the match -- Kusiak won 3-1 -- the Paralympian happily responded to congratulatory fans on Twitter as video of the shot went viral.
