If you’ve seen the not-quite-annoying ads on ESPN featuring (in order) Bill Simmons, the Celtics, Notre Dame, Mike Golic, and “Serbian table tennis sensation Biba Golic,” you probably thought, Biba Golic?! Did they just make that name up? They did not. From her Wiki page:
At the age of 12, just three years after her start in table tennis, Biba became a member of the Serbian National Cadet Team, and continued to climb the ranks to the senior Serbian National Teams during the next 10 years. In 2002 she joined Europe’s most prestigious table tennis league, the Bundes League in Germany, where she played for 1 year. It was here that she connected with Killerspin and became a sponsored player in Killerspin’s ‘Krew’.
Here’s a video of Biba in action from an appearance on The Best Damn Sports Show Period, a show that might actually be in the top five of sports shows, but only because of that glass table on set with all the billard balls in it. That thing is awesome.
