WPA World 9-Ball Championships for Juniors, Girls and Wheelchair athlets in Willingen (Germany) has come to an end. In the tournament, which was placed in a spacious, nice venue of Sauerland Stern Hotel, participated players from Europe, Asia, Africa, North and South America.
Kazoom company provided on-line streaming. Unfortunately Willingen is a small mountain town where no one apart from the competitors visited the game hall. Main disadvantage was lack of spectators, journalists and local authorities in the opening and closing ceremony. It is saddening as billiard performed by juniors and wheelchair athlets is a wonderful presentation of our sport.
Wheelchairs: 1. Henrik Larsson (SWE), 2. Jouni Tahti (FIN), 3. Fred Dinsmore (IRE) and Roy Kimberley (GBR).
Girls: 1. Kamila Khodjaeva (BEL), 2. Oliwia Czuprynska (POL), 3. Karen Garcia (NIC) and Szu-Ting Kuo (TPE).
