GB PARA CONTINUE GOLDEN TREND

The final Factor 40 Para TT event before the Paralympics was held in Bratislava, Slovakia with 13 GB players competing.

Rob Davies and Paul Davies dominated Class 1 again with Rob defeating Paul to take the gold while Paul had to settle for silver.  Jane Campbell also won silver in Class 3 following a great win over Kanova in the semi-final. Bronzes were won by David Wetherill in Class 6, Will Bayley in Class 7 and Ross Wilson in Class 8 (after a narrow defeat to the Chinese gold medallist in the semi-final).

After their singles success, team golds followed for Paul Davies and Rob Davies in Class 1 with David Wetherill –partnered by a German – also winning gold. Silvers went to Jane Campbell and Sara Head in Class 3 and Will Bayley and Paul Karabardak in Class 7.

So 10 medals were won by the GB Para TT team to add to their haul in Italy, China and Slovenia earlier this year.

Gorazd Vecko – Performance Manager for BTTAD- now looks forward to training camps in Sheffield and Slovenia before the Paralympics.
