TROON teenager Conor McAdam produced a winning performance in Eastern Europe.
He won a gold medal in the Para Table Tennis RITTO Junior (Under-23) singles event in Romania.
The 19-year-old British Para Table Tennis Pathway squad member won all three of his matches in the round robin junior men's class six singles, securing the gold with an impressive 3-0 win in his final match against the German Thilo Sonnenschein.
He also came through his group in the senior men’s class 6 singles with 3-0 wins against Florin Milciu from Romania and the Serbian Luka Andrasic and was not disgraced in a 3-0 quarter-final loss to the European team gold medallist Michael Jensen from Denmark.
“I'm happy with my performance in the U23 event. Winning my first junior singles medal, especially with it being gold. I felt that I was playing well, implementing the things that I have been working on in training. So I'm happy with that. In the senior event I felt that I played well but was outplayed by more experienced players. This has left me with some things to work on back home which can help me further my game, " said McAdam.
There was further success for Ayrshire as Ryan Henry (16) from Ardrossan took bronze in the men’s class 9-10 team event with Shae Thakker (13).
A win against Russia took them through to the quarter-finals and Henry beat Elias Monden to secure victory against a combined team from Germany and Luxembourg before the young GB pair lost their semi-final to the eventual gold medallists from Italy and Denmark.
“I was happy with the way I played and felt it was a great learning experience all round. I'm really pleased to have won a bronze medal in the team event with Shae, "said Henry.
