Badminton- Donegal pair shine in Lithuania

There was joy for the Magee family last weekend at the Lithuanian International event. Second seed Chloe won the Ladies Singles title beating Ragna Ingolfsdottir of Iceland in straight sets. Chloe won the first game comfortably 21-11 but had a battle on her hands in the second when it looked like Ragna was going to take the game, when Chloe was down 17-20 but she battled her way back to win the game 23-21,  the match and the title.  In the mixed Final, Chloe and her brother Sam lifted the title by defeating the No 1 seeds from Poland  in a marathon match 21-9, 15-21, 21-19. This was the Raphoe pairs second mixed doubles title of the year.  Sam also took home two medals. Sam and Tony Stephenson came up against the no 1 seeds from Poland in the mens doubles final. This was a very tough match for the Irish pair who lost in straight sets but they did take the silver medals.
