The biggest place went to Alexandra Saint Pierre, who took part in her first international tournament.
The day before she had won the women’s singles class 2-5, on the final day of the action she went to success in the same category together with her colleague Anaïs Cartault.
Notably, the pair scored a 2-0 win over the top-seeded team, which consisted of Russia’s Anastasia Puzanova, who teamed up with Italian Allegra Magenta and Femke Cobben from the Netherlands.
The expected success for Marlene Reeg is different. The winner in the women’s singles class 7-10 won gold in class 6-10 with her colleague Lena Kramm.
Top seeds prevail
For the men, who competed in the same category as in the individual competitions, it was the status-promising success.
Roberto Eder Rodriguez teamed up with Spanish colleague Iker Gonzalez and Kuwait Yaqoub Alqasem to win class 3; Tommy Urhaug also allied himself with his compatriot Sebastian Vegsund to win the grade 4-5 title.
In a similar way, Marc Ledoux brought Hungary Gyula Zborai to gold in class 8, an achievement that Ander Cepas achieved together with his colleague Juan Perez in class 9 and Igor Misztal in harness with Polish teammate Pawel Wlosyka in class 10.
Repeated success, so it was for Maksym Chudzicki, the men’s singles winner in class 7; he allied himself with compatriot Michal Deigsler to secure the team title in grades 6-7.
Victories as expected, also in class 1-2, the French duo Benoît Besset and Julien Michaud emerged as the winners.
Proud place for the top seeds in the men’s team competitions, but there was a surprising result.
The Germans Floria Hartig and Maximilian Krober secured the title of class 11; the decisive factor is a 2-1 win against the top seeds, the French duo Timothe Ivaldi and Antoine Zhao.
The next tournament on the calendar is the ITTF SQY French Para Open 2021, which will take place from Tuesday 9th to Thursday 11th November in Voisins les Bretonneux.
