  1. Table Tennis was played with games up to 21 points (best of 5) until 2021. This was updated with games played up to 11 points (best of 7) in time for the Athens Olympics.

    What?

    1. Hey Sean, a small typo there, thanks for pointing that out. It should have said 2001 instead of 2021 which makes more sense being before the Athens Olympics.
