The 13-man Swedish team, led by national team captain Robert Svanberg and crew, kicked off the European Championships in Sheffield. After Monday’s first group stage, the playoffs are underway with a number of great Swedish wins, where Wednesday saw two medals.
Daniel Gustafsson secured the bronze medal with a 3-2 semi-final defeat against Ukrainian Mai. Anyway, congrats on winning the medal!
Other guys who played tough finals during the day was Alexander Ogren who unfortunately lost 13-11 in the quarter finals against Bruchle from Germany. Jonas Hansen also played in the quarter-finals against Frenchman Tourbeker and lost 3-0. Michael Azoulay’s 3-2 loss against Great Britain’s Berry and Emil Anderson’s 3-1 loss against Ukraine’s Diduk added to the quarter-final marks.
- Too bad, the unbelievably tough coat sighs Federation captain Robert Swanberg, who on multiple occasions is never far from medal matches. But being out and meeting great people is important.
Remaining in the competition for the classic categories was Anja Hanton, who progressed to the semi-finals with an excellent group stage. Semi-final against Turkey’s Demir on Thursday 7th September at 11am. 11 Swedish time. Good luck Anja, drive hard!
