Anna Shrugs Off Jet-Lag To Win Women’s Title In Preston

Wales’ table tennis prodigy Anna Hursey again showed her outstanding potential by winning the women’s singles at the Preston Grand Prix – aged 12.

The Cardiff schoolgirl beat No 1 seed Haoyu Liu 3-1 (11-9, 9-11, 11-9, 11-7) in the semi-final.

Hursey, who competed for Wales at the Commonwealth Games in Apil, then beat Diruiqi Yang in the final 3-1(11-9, 3-11, 11-9, 11-8).

The performance was even more impressive from the youngster as she had just returned from an event in Shanghai with her Welsh team-mates.
