Badminton: English pair boost their Olympic hopes
Monday 26 March 2012
England badminton pair Nathan Robertson and Jenny Wallwork gave themselves a ranking boost in the race to qualify for London 2012 by overcoming team-mates Ben Stawski and Lauren Smith 21-15, 21-11 at the Polish International yesterday.
Their win in Wroclaw followed up their title success at the Swedish International in Stockholm in January. Mariana Agathangelou and Heather Olver also collected a vital haul of rankings points as they battle for a women's doubles spot at London 2012. The English top seeds were in fine form, beating Eva Lee and Paula Lynn Obanana, the third seeds from the US, 21-12, 23-21 to add the Polish title to their Swedish success earlier this year.
