BC3 final match – Yuen Kei Ho (Hong Kong) vs Masayuki Arita (Japan)

The first BISFed individual competitions of 2019 have come to an end in Guangzhou.

One of the special things about a BISFed Boccia competition is that men and women compete against each other on equal terms. There were 5 female and 11 male athletes amongst the 16 finalists, competing for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd rankings in each category.

In the BC1 category there were no big surprises with 4 of the top 5 ranked athletes making it to the two final matches.

1st – Witsanu Huadpradit (Thailand)

2nd – Subin Tipmanee (Thailand)

3rd – Natthawut Deemak (Thailand)

In the BC2 competition there were 6 athletes competing in a BISFed tournament for the first time. World ranked number 1 came out on top, so no surprise there. However he had a tough match against Chee Hoong Lee, ranked 7th in the tournament, winning the final match by one point only.

1st – Worawut Saengampa (Thailand)

2nd – Chee Hoong Lee (Malaysia)

3rd – Hiu Lam Yeung (Hong Kong)

The BC3 tournament introduced a new contender for the top places. Winning the final match by 5 x 1, it is the first time Masayuki Arita from Japan has entered a BISFed tournament. We are looking forward to seeing if his future performances will take him to Tokyo 2020.

1st – Masayuki Arita (Japan)

2nd – Yuen Kei Ho (Hong Kong)

3rd – Keisuke Kawamoto (Japan)

In the BC4 competition Ritthikrai Somsanuk from Thailand took the top spot by defeating Yuk Wing Leung from Hong Kong 6 x 3. Thailand also won the match for third place, building on a strong performance from Thailand in the individual competitions.

1st – Ritthikrai Somsanuk (Thailand)

2nd – Yuk Wing Leung (Hong Kong)

3rd – Pornchok Larpyen (Thailand)

Congratulations to all athletes for a great competition!
