Denmark Dominates at European Badminton Championships in Poland

The European Badminton Championships ended today at the Sport Arena in Lodz, Poland. Denmark is a great protagonist, since she takes home both titles, in one case (men) against France, in the other (women) against Spain.

Starting from the women’s final, the first point goes to the Iberians because Carolina Marin is stronger than Line Kjaersfeldt. Immediately afterwards, however, Mia Blichfeldt beats Clara Azurmendi and from there, given the greater quality of the Danish team, it is a spread that very quickly leads to 3-1 and the failure to play the last double, at that point useless.

As far as the men are concerned, Denmark beat France with a clear 3-0. The success of Anders Antonsen on Toma Junior Popov, and also double Astrup/Rasmussen dominates over Corvee/Labar. Christo Popov came very close to giving the French team further hope, but collapsed in the third set against Rasmus Gemke.

At the end of the day, therefore, the men’s podium is made up of Denmark, France and the Germany-England pair by virtue of the third place commonly assigned to the two semi-finalists. Among women, however, behind Denmark and Spain, the semi-finalists with shared third place are France and Scotland.
