Badminton may be the best sport ever.
This badminton rally, courtesy of the Dubai World Superseries Finals, is perhaps the greatest display of athleticism and hand-eye coordination from this calendar year. I mean, how do these people even know where the shuttlecock is going? The increasing degree of difficulty toward the end of the rally is a hallmark of any great back-and-forth highlight.
The four shots before the winner are truly, truly incredible. Just watch the first minute of this video and enjoy.
