The Dangerous World of Speed Gluing

In the final of our series on Table Tennis, we look at the use of glue to cheat in table tennis.

When Hungarian player Tibor Klampár discovered volatile glues gave the rubber on bats 30 per cent more spin and speed, it led to an arms race for the most toxic glues.

Titus O'Reily and Mick Molloy look at the dangerous trick that led to players passing out and police raiding table tennis shops.

Titus O'Reily and Mick Molloy are excited to announce the launch of Bizarre Plus, the new Membership program for even more Sports Bizarre.
