Favourites Take Gold In Table Tennis

NICOSIA, 6 June 2009 - Gudmundur Eggert Stephensen from Iceland and Xia Lian Ni from Luxemburg confirmed the pre-game predictions and won the gold medals in Menís and Womenís singles tournaments respectively in the XIII Games of the Small States of Europe.

The 27year old Icelander and the 46year Luxembourgian, lust like in Monaco two years ago, won gold medal. In the menís final Stephensen, who beat Marios Giagkou of Cyprus in the semifinal, beat Dagi Wang of San Marino 3-1. Wang earlier on Saturday beat Gerada from Malta 3-1 to reach the final.

The womenís final turned out to be an internal affair of Luxemburg. Xia Lian Ni won gold after beating Simone Haan with 3-1. Ni only lost one set in the entire tournament (the one against Haan in the final) on her road to gold. In the semis, Ni beat Yan Chimei of San Marino while Haan overcame Louiza Kourea of Cyprus. The two losers of the semifinal shared the bronze medal.
