Another Irish medal win at the Euros
Date: April 26, 2009 12:59PM
Irish pool player, Fred Dinsmore, has picked up another bronze, this time in the 9-Ball, at the European Championships in Austria. This follows the Bronze he won in the 8-Ball. Fred narrowly lost the semi-final to Jouni Tahti, the eventual Gold Medallist, in a match that could have gone either way.

Jouni Tahti won both the wheelchair events, while in the Womenís division, Jasmin Ouschan again dominated, winning the 8-ball and 9-ball. The Austrian also won a silver in the Straight Pool, beaten by the great Gerda Hofstatter 75-70.

The Menís division was more open with 6 different players in the 3 finals. Dimitri Jungo won the Straight, Andreas Roschkowsky the 8-Ball, and Nick Berg-van-den won a well deserved Gold in the 9-Ball.
