Indian junior paddlers corner four bronze medalsIndias young paddlers sparkled in the SET Thailand Junior & Cadet Open, clinching four bronze medals here on Sunday.

Oishik beat the talented Masa Hiko Yan of Hong Kong 3-1 in the quarters to clinch a place in the medal round. However, he could not emulate his performance in the semis and bowed out of the tournament, losing 1-3 to Tan Nicholas of Singapore to settle for bronze.

Ashish also cruised into the last four with a dominating 3-0 victory over Thailand’s Woraset Bavornthammarat. Up against Le Ellworth of Singapore in the semis, he could not mount much of a challenge and went down 1-3 to be content with a bronze.

Unlike the boys, Sayani had to really grind it out to finish on the podium. She eked out a narrow 3-2 victory over Maldives’ Fathimath Dheema Ali in the Round of 8 before capitulating 0-3 to Sum Yee Samm Law of Hong Kong to bring home the bronze.

The India 1 team of Manush, Reagan and Deepit cruised to the semis with a 3-1 victory over Chinese Taipei 1. But they could not maintain the momentum and bowed out with a 0-3 loss to the Singapore 1 team.
