Ticino bronze at the U20 European Championships
Four Swiss teams competed in the U20 European Championships in Anapa (Russia). Bellinzonese Sibelly Gilardi (17 years, Sag Gordola) and Lucerne Esmée Böbner (18 years) won the bronze medal by winning 2-0 in the final for third place against the Czechs Maixnerova / Stochlova (21-19, 21-19 ). The title went to the darlings of the home Bocharova / Voronina who beat the Polish Gierczynska / Jundzill 2-0 (21-13, 21-8)
The result of the second Swiss women's team was also good but it failed to enter the semifinal losing 2-0 against the Polish women. Fifth rank, therefore, for Mara Betschart and Céline Baumann.
