After some great performances on day two of the Para table tennis World Qualification Tournament in Lasko, Slovenia five British athletes are still in with a chance of securing qualification for the Paralympic Games.

Sue Gilroy (women’s class 4), Fliss Pickard (women’s class 6), Jack Hunter-Spivey (men’s class 5), Billy Shilton (men’s class 8) and Ashley Facey Thompson (men’s class 9) are through to the semi-finals tomorrow but there was disappointment for Martin Perry (men’s class 6) and Kim Daybell (men’s class 10) who must wait and see if they will be awarded wildcards for Tokyo after losing their quarter-final matches today.

The competition concludes tomorrow with the semi-finals and finals with only the winner of each class securing Paralympic qualification.
