Ding Ning, the world's top table tennis player, tossed a ball in anger after being penalized a point for improperly toweling off in her loss match to Xia Oxia Li in the gold-medal match.
Judging by her eyes, she wanted to toss a ball down the throat of Li, who annoyingly shouted in glee with every point she won.
Perhaps the over-exuberant Li knew she was ending her longtime bridesmaid status in beating her rival.
All the drama! This was no basement ping pong.
