Thakker bags four golds at grand prix
A RISING table tennis star from Denham landed no less than four gold medals at the SportsAble Southern Disability Grand Prix.
Cheered on by friends and family, 11-year-old Shae Thakker reigned supreme at the event at his home club in Cippenham, Berkshire, on Saturday.
Among his triumphs were the Class Singles and Junior Singles titles, and it was in the final of the former that Thakker really made his mark.
He beat Welsh paraplegic international star Joshua Morgan 15-13 in the fifth and deciding game after a pulsating finish to a thrilling match.
