Badminton results – Irish take Bronze in Canadian Open

Updated: July 6, 2014

Sam and Chloe Magee failed to the result they wanted as they went out of the 2014 Canada Grand Prix to Max Schwenger and Carla Nelte of Germany.

The Irish pairing were seeded four with the Germans taking the number two seeding so both pairs had justified their seeding as they made the semi-final. In the semi-final the German pairing were the pair in control as the Irish despite a number of good spells of play were always chasing the game. The final score of 21-17 and 21-15 brought the Germans through to the final where they will meet number one seeds Jorrit De Ruiter and Samantha Barning of Holland.

Next Stop for the Irish will be US open Grand prix gold in New York
