Conor McAdam, Craig Allen and Shae Thakker all claimed gold today in the Junior Open in Romania and there were two further medals for the GB Pathway squad as Lawrence John took silver and Dan Bullen bronze.
McAdam won all three of his matches in the round robin men’s class 6 singles, securing the gold with an impressive 3-0 win in his final match against the German Thilo Sonnenschein. Thakker also came through the round robin men’s class 10 singles undefeated and his narrow 3-2 win against GB team mate Lawrence John (14-12 in the fifth) proved to be the decisive match as John went on to take the silver.
Allen lost his second match in the men’s class 9 singles to the German Laurenz Fehling 3-2 but with wins against Vladislav Balobanov from Russia and Elias Monden from Germany he took the gold on countback.
Bullen topped his group in the men’s class 2-5 singles with three wins from three before losing a very close semi-final to Sebastian Brandal from Norway 12-10 in the fifth.
