Many athletes play conservatively, but this risky gamble at a recent "Sudirman Cup 2017" badminton clash spectacularly paid off. When Tan Kian Meng's racket strings snap in the middle of a doubles match, he grabs partner Lai Pen's racket and singlehandedly holds off their Japanese rivals while his teammate grabs an extra racquet. Against all odds, he holds his ground long enough for Lai to win the rally for Malaysia!
At satisfying as these "wins" are, what would our favorite sports be without some epic fails? Trevor Sheahan loses more than a birdie when he tries to rescue his soggy ball from a water hazard in a hilarious case of "butterfingers."
