Near miss

badminton: Dalkeith’s Colin Leslie was one win away from a place in the quarter finals in the singles of the European Parabadminton Championships in Dortmund at the weekend.

Colin was the only double lower leg amputee in the event.

This was the first time Scotland had been able to send a full team and a coach to a parabadminton event.

Lyndon Williams, chairman of the Scottish Disability working Group, said: “The team can now hopefully plan for the World Championships in France in September 2013.”
