African Open Tunisia Day 2
African Open - Tunisia
On day 2 of the African Open in Tunisia, our team has added a fifth place (Duke Didier) and two seventh places (Eoin and Aoife Coughlan) to the bronze medal (Josh Katz) and the fifth place (Jake Bensted) won on day 1 of the competition.
Duke defeated athletes from Tunisia and Azerbaijan and gained some more points towards his Olympic campaign.
Aoife fought very well and after a first round win against Tunisia, she narrowly lost in the quarter final.
Overall our team finished 13th on the medal table out of the 34 Nations competing at this tournament. Half of our team finished in the top 8 and secured more points on the World and Olympic Ranking Lists.
Great result in the final five months of the Olympic Qualifying period!
