With a score of 33-31, Tokic and Ovtcharov broke the world record this evening for most points in a game.
In honour of those 64 points in 26 minutes, here are four things you could do in the same amount of time now that Day 3 of the Games is over:
- Need a quick table tennis fix? Watch a replay of Ding Ning’s win over Elizabeta Samara. But that only took 11 minutes. Rewind the tape and watch it again.
- Get your phone out and play Pokemon Go. Walking for 20 minutes should be enough time to hatch a 2km egg. If you’re lucky you could hatch a Pikachu while Dima is trying not to crack under pressure.
- Jump on Netflix and watch an episode of your favourite sitcom. 20 minutes in to Netflix and Tokic still hasn’t won yet.
- Learn to solve the Rubik’s Cube. This tutorial video will teach you how to complete the cube in 23 minutes. Now if only wining consecutive points could be that easy.
