Wheelchair final played between Tahti and Larsson

Saturday, 03 September 2011: The final day of the 2011 WPA World 9-ball Championships for Juniors and Wheelchair players has started with the semi-final matches in the wheelchair and in the girls division.

In the wheelchair division, both matches were quite clear with regards to the results. Jouni Tahti (FIN) defeated Fred Dinsmore (IRE) with 9:4. Tahti was the favourite in that match from the very beginning, and it took six racks before Dinsmore was able to open his account. 5:1 was the score for Tahti by then. After a time-out, Dinsmore got into the game a bit better but the gap to Tahti was too big already. Tahti was a deserved 9:4 winner in the end and will now play for the Gold Medal in the wheelchair division.

He will be joined by Henrik Larsson (SWE) who ousted Kurt Deklerck (BEL) clearly with 9:3. As in the other match, Larsson was dominating Deklerck today and never let anyone get a doubt that he is not going to win this match. The final match between Tahti and Larsson will be an interesting encounter for the crown in the world of wheelchair 9-ball.

In the girls division, local hero Oliwia Czuprynska (POL) enjoyed the popularity from the audience and overcame her opponent Kamila Khodjaeva (BEL) with 9:5.

Czuprynska is 16 year old and will face Anastasia Nechaeva (RUS) in the final of the girls division. Nechaeva has beaten her teammate Darya Sirotina (RUS) in a semi-final thriller with 9:8.

The semi-finals in the boys division will be played between Marc Bijsterbosch (NED) v Marek Kudlik (POL) and Konrad Piekarski (POL) v Bence Varga (HUN).
