Meanwhile, Para table tennis ‘goddess’ Yun Jiyu (Sport Class 3 – Shengnam City Hall) also enjoyed the thrill of reaching the top of the podium in her maiden Asian Games appearance after defeating Xu Jian (CHN) 3-1 (11-9 7-11 12-10 11-5) in the women’s singles Class 3 final at the Hangzhou Archer Canal Sports Center on the same day.

Yun Jiyu was down 1-5 in the first set but fought back to take the first set. She then dropped the second set, but fought back from a 10-10 deuce deficit in the third set to take the set and then used her momentum to win the fourth set 11-5.

“At the last Paralympic Games in Tokyo, I lost at 10-10 deuce, so I’m happy that I didn’t turn it around this time,” said Yun Jiyu, who was 2-7 against Xu Jian.
