Bali 16: It's the end of the world as we know it

We had an excellent first set on the final day but a poor second one where the lead disappeared so we started the final set 7 behind and although there were several chances up as far as Board 94 we couldn't quite do it. Silver is nothing to be other than proud of and its the first medal for 28 years in this event for our team.

At the medal ceremony Fiona & Susan were congratulated on joining the rest of the team as World Grand Masters.

England's final position also means they qualify for the Sport Accord games in Beijing just before Xmas.

Later today we start the trek home from the most hospitable of islands. Next time in 2015 the venue is likely to be Goa.


  1. Shame about the final result, so close, but congratulations on adding to the ever growing medal collection.

  2. A very well done to the team, A fantastic achievement in a tough field. The girls, and boys, should be very proud of themselves, we certainly are. Congratulations to Nevena Senior, Heather Dhondy, Sally Brock, Nicola Smith, Susan Stockdale, Fiona Brown, Captain Jeremy Dhondy and Coach David Burn.
