Odds are you missed the women’s doubles final at the All England Open badminton tournament in Birmingham over the weekend because you were busy doing anything else, like watching Cincinnati blow a 22-point second half lead against Nevada in the NCAA Tournament or starring at the sun. Literally, anything else.
But that means you missed what could go down as the most epic badminton point in the history of the sport. Watch as Denmark’s Christinna Pedersen and Kamilla Rytter Juhl battle Japan’s Yuki Fukushima and Sayaka Hirota to the tune of 102 hits during a single rally.

The Danish pair have also won a silver medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics, and they are also partners off the badminton court.
