Anna, 11, bows out


Eleven-year-old Welsh table tennis player Anna Hursey bowed out of the women’s singles event, but not before confirming her precocious talent. Hursey took just 17 minutes to win her first singles match, but then lost in the second round in straight sets to Malaysia’s Li Sian Alice Chang. She had already competed in the teams event earlier this week, winning twice and showing some powerful forehands and composure. Hursey has been chaperoned by her mother Phoebe at these Games.
