Nigerians celebrate their pants off amid table tennis glory

- July 28th, 2014

Following a substandard showing at the FIFA World Cup, Nigerian pride has been restored.

By the Central African nation’s ping pong team, no less.

The Nigerians claimed a bronze medal in the men’s team table tennis event at the Commonwealth Games on Monday in Glasgow, Scotland, topping India 3-1.

Following Ojo Onaolapo’s Match 4 win, the Nigerian team celebrated their pants off.

No, seriously. Check out this celebration.

That wasn’t the only memorable thing Nigeria’s ping pong team produced at these Games.

Check out this insane 41-shot rally during a quarterfinal meeting between Nigeria and Singapore.

Singapore went on to top England for the gold medal.

    You’ve got to love this. The pro side of table tennis is so serious. It is so refreshing to see a bit of rock n roll in the sport.
