On Thursday, in the BC4 doubles category, my Ontario teammate Dale Stevenson and I had a fantastic first day of competition. After 3 victories out of 3, we won gold and showed off some great shots and strategies.
Friday saw the beginning of singles play. Both Dale and I took our momentum from doubles into our singles matches. We drew each other first, and Dale edged me 1 – 3. Still playing great, Stevenson took on World #4 Marco Dispaltro and beat him in an exciting one point victory.
After all the games were played I finished with a reasonable 2 – 2 record. The top 3 BC4 singles division finished as follows:
1. Marco Dispaltro
2. Dale Stevenson
3. Josh Vander Vies
Team Canada has a final training camp tomorrow, before announcing the London 2012 Paralympic team in the coming days.
