Mary Takes Bronze in Japan

The Daihatsu Japan Para-Badminton International 2018 took place between the 26th and 30th September and Scotland had only one competitor, Mary Wilson in attendance.

The Bronze came in the SL3-SU5 Women’s doubles event where she was partnering Frances Veronique Braud.

The pair came through to the semi-finals, having finished second in their group, guaranteeing a bronze medal.

But they were unable to upgrade that to silver or gold when they lost to Katrin Seibert and Chanida Srinavakul 21-15 21-4.

Mary also reached the quarter final stages of the SL4-SU5 women’s singles losing out to Chanida Srinavakul of Thailand 21-17 21-12. This was not the end of her singles though, and playing in the SL4 women’s bronze medal match Mary was narrowly defeated by Germanys’ Katrin Seibert 20-22, 14-21.

In the mixed doubles, pairing up with Germany’s Jan- Niklas Potts, the pair came up against some tough opponents and were unable to reach the knockout stages.
