Billy Shilton wins table tennis bronze for ParalympicsGB


Stonehouse table tennis star Billy Shilton scooped Tokyo Paralympic bronze in the team event after Great Britain went down fighting in their semi-final against China.

Although Shilton didn’t play in the semi-final, he played a massive part in the quarter-final win against Hungary and has shown his huge potential at his first Paralympic Games.

“I’m really happy with how I’ve performed in singles and team events,” he said. “My expectations were to come and try and enjoy the experience and play the best I could. I wasn’t aiming to do anything – just take every match as it comes and to come away with a medal with Aaron and Ross is an amazing feeling.

“Losing in the quarter-finals and being one match away from a medal in the singles was really hard for me to take and I think I can use that as motivation. I can also use winning bronze in the team event as motivation to get to the final next time.”
