Tokyo 2021 Paralympics: medal heartache for Billy

MOST READ

Billy Shilton says he was “devastated” after missing out on a Paralympics medal in Tokyo.

The 22-year-old Stonehouse table tennis star lost to London and Rio Paralympic champion from China Zhao Shuai and pushed the World number two all the way despite a 3-0 loss, saving four match points before going down 14-12 in the third.

The former Maidenhill pupil has shown his huge potential in his first Paralympics but was bitterly disappointed to miss out on a medal.

“Obviously it is difficult right now as emotions are high,” he said. “I feel the level that I played in the match was high and I had chances in the first and the third to win the sets so probably in a few hours I’ll be a bit happier with my performance but right now I’m devastated.”

Shilton will now turn his attention to the men’s class 8 team event that starts on August 31.
