The BISFed 2019 Dubai Boccia Regional Open came to an end as the last competition in BISFed´s 2019 competition calendar. The competition had great results for Korea, topping the medal tally with 8 medals – 4 Gold, 2 Silver and 2 Bronze. Indonesia also did well with 6 medals – 3 Silver and 3 Bronze. This was an even more incredible feat for Indonesia as these were their first medals in BISFed competitions after creating their National team for the 2018 Asian Para Games just over a year ago. Congratulations!
This was the last competition awarding valuable World Ranking points for Tokyo 2020 Paralympic qualification. Malaysian BC1 athlete Chew Wei Lun took advantage of this and won the Bronze medal which should have provided enough ranking points to qualify for Tokyo. Final World Rankings for Tokyo qualification will be confirmed on the 13th of January 2020.
BISFed thanks the organizers, athletes, team officials, technical officials and volunteers for all their hard work. See you all again in 2020!
