Day 5 of Individual Competition

Today was the last day of the individual event. Chloe had made it to the Plate Final and was taking on Belgian Tinne Gilis. 

Chloe was the only Canadian match on for today and it was an exciting match to watch against the 5/8 seed, Tinne Gilis of Belgium. The first game was really close but Tinne pulled it out 13-11. Chloe came out strong in the second game and won 11-7. Chloe hit a few more tins than she wanted so Tinne got the third game 11-8. Chloe played some amazing squash in the 4th game and took it 11-7. Tied at 2-2 the match was getting more intense. Chloe came out strong but Tinne held her ground and didn't seem to be making any errors. Tinne won the 5th game 11-6. 

We said goodbye to Tara today who is flying back to Canada after a great performance in the Individual draw. We will miss you a lot. :)

The winner of the Girls Individual Event were Nouran Gohar who upset the first seed Habiba Mohammed in a close 4 games. The winner of the Boys Individual Event was Diego Elias who cruised through the tournament without losing a game. 

Tomorrow is the first day of Team Competition. We are seeded 8th but we will be working very hard to prove our seeding wrong. We are in Pool A wit the number 1 seeds; Egypt, the 9th seed; Switzerland and the 13/16th seed; South Africa.
