Padmore retains title


Share post:

ANDRE PADMORE defied the odds and stood tall to retain his championship and win his eighth singles title when the finals concluded at the Wildey Gymnasium for the 2015 Barbados Badminton Association Senior National Championships.

Padmore stormed from behind to defeat Bradley Pilgrim in three absorbing games on Thursday night.

In the early going Padmore was under severe pressure and trailed 11-6 at the first interval as Pilgrim dictated every aspect of the match.

Although he eventually lost a close first game, he appeared more settled as evidenced by his 8-1 start in the second. It became quite clear that he would not relinquish his title without a fight as he unleashed a variety of shots in order to keep Pilgrim guessing. (PR)
