Poland takes the lead in the medal table

Portoroz,  Slovenia:  The  Gold  medalists  are  Mateusz  Sniegocki  (POL), Oliwia Czuprynska (POL) and Kurt Deklerck (BEL). The  final  match in  the men’s division  between

Mateusz Sniegocki (POL)
Mateusz Sniegocki (POL)

Sniegocki and Konstantin Stepanov  (RUS)  was   a  demonstration  of power  from  the  Polish  player.  He seemed  to be so  full of  self-confidence.  He  played  rock solid  and  punished  every  mistake  that Stepanov  made  without  mercy.  „It’s  good  to hear  that  I  look very  self-confident“,  stated a modest  Sniegocki  after  the  final,  „sometimes though  I  did  not  feel  like  that“,  he  said, smiling.  „I  think  I  did not  give many  chances to  my  opponents today.  Maybe  that  was  the key  for  my  success  today.  I  feel very  happy  about  that  Gold Medal“.  Sniegocki defeated  Stepanov  clearly  with 8:3 and Stepanov never had a chance to get into the match at all.
The  women’s  final between  Czuprynska  and  Marika  Poikkijoki (FIN)  was also  a  clear  affair.  Czuprynska  was  superior  to  Poikkijoki,  who  eliminated favorite  player  Jasmin  Ouschan  (AUT)  in  the  semi-final.  Czuprynska  couldn’t believe  her  victory  right  after  she  won  6:2 over  Poikkijoki.  „I  really  don’t  know how I feel“, said Czuprynska, „I  think I’m  still nervous“ she said,  still completely full of  emotions after  the  match.  „I  feel like after  I  won  the Gold  Medal in  the World Junior Championships in Poland. And I really  like that  feeling.  I like it  so much  that  I  want  to  feel  it  again  during  these  Championships“,  said  likable Czuprynska.  If  she will be able to keep her performance on today’s level,  it  will
not  be  a  surprise  if  she  will  be  seen  in  the  final  stages  of  the  upcoming disciplines as well.

In  the  wheelchair  division,  Deklerck  proved  to  play  too  strong  for  Roy Kimberley (GBR) and took the title with 6:4.
