Swastika Ghosh claimed a bronze medal in the junior girls' doubles along with Singapore's Jingyi Zhou in the 2018 Hang Seng Hong Kong Junior and Cadet Open of table tennis, that concluded last week in Hong Kong. The pair defeated Pei-Ling Su and Yu-Chin Tsai of Taipei 3-1 in the round of 16 before overcoming Binyue Zhang and Yi Chen of China in quarter-finals.
The Taipei combination of Li Lin Jassy Tan of Singapore and Ruei Ling Wen, however, overtook Swastika and her Singapore partner in the semi-finals and the latter lost 2-3 last Saturday. In the junior boys' doubles category, the Indian combination of Raegan Alberquerque and Payas Jain got through to the pre-quarters but lost to the Thai pair of Yanapong Panagitgun and Supakron Pankhaoyoy.
