Ross Wilson will be representing Great Britain in the Paralympics and has vowed to give it his best shot.
He believes the home crowd could give him an extra advantage to his games Ross has just turned 17, and will play in front of 5,000 people on saturday at 11AM so don’t miss out.
Wilson said: “It’s been hard to adapt to everything over the past year but I have been enjoying every second of it.”
The competition could see Ross face the No.1 Emil Andersson who he will be seeking revenge after he beat him in European championships.
He added this “He’s a good player but there are two Chinese players who are strong too.”
China sweeped up the medals in the London Olympics taking home 4 gold medals and 2 silver medals. They have now set the pace for other countries to challenge with some very good challengers coming through from the U.S, Japan, Korea and Germany. But we will have to wait for years when the Olympics comes to Rio, Brazil for these players who are coming through to challenge for these medals.
As for Great Britain we are a long way off to competing at the top but there is still hope.
