I think the shot of the year has to be Dave Wetherill Team GB at the London 2012 Paralympics, the moment it went onto youtube it went viral (probably seen in outer space by now ha ha) and millions have seen it.
That determination showed passion, heart, skill and a bit of crazy thrown in which is what we all love about the sport.
The looks on everyone's faces it just says it all.
 
says Hello FbERN! I think it is a good choice :)

The Kreanga, Lorentz and Boll exchanges were more like.. Rally oriented ...
But when I have to look at this poll as of a SHOT of the year, well..
Okay, the paralympic shot is amazing, but I dont think it deserves a title of a shot of the year.
We have seen shots like that before (at least I did)..
I also saw excellent touch rolling balls after net..
I also saw many around the net shots..
I also saw some behind the back shots..
But what I have never seen is what mr. Amin Tayan did!!!
Because I had to rewind it and watch it like 4 times again and again till I really understood what happened there!
That was like completely insane!
I believe that he couldnt repeat that one if he tryed hundred times, hehe.. But this was simply.. for me..
THE SHOT OF THE YEAR!
So my vote is 6 ;)
Second place is no. 5 ;)

I think Wetherill's shot has to be the best, it's inspirational, it's amazing and he took the fall to win the point. Everyone else loved it too, well worth a standing ovation.

Rally of the year has to go to Kreanga and Tokic on a sidenote ;)

Hi guys, cheers for the votes of confidence! I haven't done many posts on here but that doesn't mean I'm not well aware of how phenomenal this site is, great stuff!

I'm not gonna say who I voted for ;) but what I will say is that I'm honoured to be included in this poll, such a privilege! Its the stuff of dreams as a table tennis fan growing up.

Dunno whether I can honestly say I think my shot is the best, or whether it even deserves to be there at all...I'm sure you've all done plenty more amazing shots in your time (as have I)! These just happen to have been lucky enough to be caught on camera :) They're all incredible!!
