European Team Table Tennis Championship: The teams that will fight for the medals are out


The Sweden-Hungary and Portugal-Denmark matches in the men’s quarter-finals at the European Team Table Tennis Championships in Malmo were impressive and developed into a “thriller”. In front of thousands of her friends, the “hostess” saw “Haro with her own eyes” until she beat Hungary 3-2 on aggregate and qualified for the semi-finals.

Portugal beat Denmark by the same score and will also find themselves in the medal zone, but earlier saw rival athlete Anders Lind lash out at his individual defeat on the big electronic results screen, smashing it and getting consistently disqualified can’t even be replaced!

The holder of the title, Germany, had an equally difficult time getting into the top four (3-2 in Croatia) and France more easily.

Similarly, for the women, the semi-final pairs and the national teams covering the medal positions were highlighted, as there are no games for positions 3-4. They are Germany, Portugal, Romania and France.

The Greek delegation, meanwhile, returned to Athens late Thursday night. The latest news about the federal coach, Giorgos Karytsa, and his knee injury are of the greatest importance and were encouraging. The coach seems to be avoiding the worst after the unfortunate moment he had outside the gym in Sweden.

After receiving care at the hospital in Malmö, he was examined on Friday and in Athens, and the diagnosis was a partial tear in the right knee. The problem can be treated without surgery, however next Monday the experienced technician will need to undergo an MRI to determine the extent of the injury.

The semi-final pairings are Germany-Portugal and Sweden-France for men and Germany-Portugal and France-Romania for women.
