Fred Dinsmore wins Ireland’s first medal at European Championships 2011

Fred Dinsmore has won his 11th European Championship medal, and Ireland’s first at this year’s championships in Brandenberg, Germany.  The former World Champion from Dublin, put in a solid performance against British player Matt Duffy, 5-2, making it to the Semi-Final in the wheelchair division.  There he faced his old rival and friend Kurt Deklerck from Belgium.  Fred played well but Kurt was too good on the day and won the match 5-2.  But Fred didn’t leave empty handed, and took away a Bronze, Ireland’s first medal this year.
