This just in from the International Table Tennis Federation: Spain's Josep Antón Velázquez's trick shot has been named the world's best.

The ITTK says more than 80 people submitted videos for the STIGA 2013 ITTF Trick Shot Showdown, which earned 2 million views. (STIGA makes table tennis equipment.)
