Ayhika wins silver

Indian table tennis player Ayhika Mukherjee settled for a silver medal after going down 1-3 to Korea’s Youjin Kim in the final of the ITTF Challenge Belgium Open in the under-21 women’s singles category.

Anthony Amalraj and Sanil Shetty too fought their way into the medals bracket, bagging a bronze in the men’s doubles.

Ayhika put up a brave fight in the summit clash but Kim proved to be a tough nut to crack in the end.

In men’s doubles, Amalraj and Shetty started slowly, losing a tight opening game 10-12 to the Belgian pair of Olav Kosolosky and Laurens Devos.

They had a tough second game too which they eventually managed to win 15-13.

There was no stopping them thereafter, as they won the next two rather easly 11-9, 11-6.
