Wednesday saw OC team up with housemate and close friend Borgar Haug in the Junior doubles where they were seeded 7th. The two mates cruised into the Last 8 with solid wins over pairs from Italy 3-0, USA 3-1 and impressively Singapore 3-1. 

Thursday morning’s play has seen a superb last 32 singles win for OC over Andrea Puppo(ITA) 4-0! This was a crushing win over the 13th seed that sends OC into the Last 16 where tough Singapore opposition awaits later today.

Thursday has also provided a huge win for OC and Borgar in the doubles last 8 were they have defeated the no 4 seeded Italians Puppo and Rossi 3-2. This win guarantees another WJC medal for the lads with a semi-final against Singapore to play at lunchtime! Lets do it boys! #WJCMedal
