Alistair Donohoe, returns to the cycling track today with one thing on his mind – redemption!
In 2016 he was up against Ukraine’s Yehor Dementyev as they sprinted towards the finish line. The two leaders were fighting for gold, before Dementyev, veered into the path of Donohoe and they both crashed to the ground. Robbed of his Paralympic gold medal dream in Rio, Donohoe will be looking to bring home that medal from Tokyo.
Not since the Tokyo 1964 Paralympic Games has Australia featured in the teams gold medal playoff in Para-table tennis – but on Friday that drought will end.
In the 9-10 Class, Australia will feature in the men’s and women’s gold medal finals as the squad aims to add another two medals to Aussie Para-table tennis medal haul that already includes two gold and two silver medals.
The Australian women take on reigning Paralympic champions Poland at 11am AEST. Lina Lei, Qian Yang and Milly Tapper come into the match having not dropped a game, taking down Hungary and China both 2-0.
Lei and Yang went head-to-head with Poland at the Rio Paralympics for their native country China. Combining with Tapper here in Tokyo, they hope when they don the green and gold they’ll be able to bring home another gold medal for Australia, as they did earlier in the Games in the Singles.
