Ireland had great success at the 2013 World Transplant Games which took place in Durban, South Africa last week. Ireland had 2 competitors Deirdre Faul, an existing World Champion and Andrew Duncan. This was Andrew’s first games.
Deirdre Faul (40-49 years)
Andrew Duncan (15- 17 years)
Andrew’s result is particularly impressive given that it was his first Games and he is the entry age of his category and as such will be able to defend his title in the same age category in two years time when the Games will be held in Mar Del Plata in Argentina.
Deirdre again defended her World title which she has held since 2007 when she attended her first World Transplant Games.
Very well done to both Deirdre and Andrew and hopefully both will defend their gold medals in the next games in 2 years time.
