Having picked up a Silver medal at last weeks Para Slovenia Open Rena McCarron Rooney’s fine form continued as she progressed to the semi-final of the Para Slovakia Open today.
She had a narrow 3:2 loss in the group stage to Pouchpacheva (WR 3 and top seed) before a really good win against WR8 Gossiaux of France. In this morning’s quarter final she beat Bootwansirina of Thailand WR6, recovering from two sets down to win a huge match 3:2. In this afternoons semi final she was beaten 3:1 by LaFaye of France (WR) but she picked up a bronze medal and more importantly vital ranking points towards Rio 2016 qualification.
So, excellent back-to-back Factor 40 tournaments for Rena that should see her firmly in the World Top 10 when the rankings released later this month.
Rena’s next tournament is the Para German Open in the last week in May.
