BARBADOS earned bronze medals in both the men’s and women’s team events yesterday at the Pan American Qualifying Table Tennis Championships being played at the Cliff Anderson Hall, Georgetown, Guyana.

The Bajan men played with authority in the group exchanges, losing only to the Dominican Republic on the way to a semi-final berth against Puerto Rico.

The Puerto Ricans proved too much in the semi-finals for Barbados who had to share the bronze medal position with Guyana after they went under to the Dominican Republic. The Dominican Republic went on to beat Puerto Rico 3-0 in the final to defend their title.

The Bajan women finished third in a round-robin contest in which they defeated St Kitts and Nevis as well as Jamaica. Against Jamaica, Janae Lewis led the team to a 3-1 victory by beating Sandra Riettie 11-2, 11-6, 11-4. (PH)
