August 23th 2015
Today finished the Pairs Championships in its four categories. In under 26 years, the gold medal went to the Swedish brothers Mikael and Ola Rimstedt. The Silver was for the Italian-Argentina pair Guiseppe Delle Cave and Rodrigo García da Rosa; third an American partnership Julie Arbit and Sean Gannon.
In the under 21 category, the gold was for a Chinese duo; Wei Hongji and Sun Shiyu and for the under 15 category the gold was for the Danish pair: Soren Bune and Christian Lahrmann, the latter only 12 years old.
During the awards ceremony a valet of Chinese players delighted us with a traditional dance of their country and afterwards a cocktail was served at the hotel’s terrace.
This afternoon the official photo of the event was taken, with all the players, all the officials and all the tournament staff, as a curiosity a drone was used to take some photos.
VERY Good luck to all of them.
