World Paralympic Table Tennis Championship-bound Josephine Medina ruled the women’s T 7-8 table tennis event yesterday in the PSC-PHILSPADA National Paralympic Games at the Marikina Sports Center.
Medina was untouchable in sweeping all of her three matches to retain the women’s singles crown in the meet organized by the Philippine Sports Association for Disabled Athletes and supported by the Philippine Sports Commission.
A bronze medalist in the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games, Medina began the day with an 11-2, 11-1, 11-1 whipping of Purificacion Mingarine. The 48-year-old native of Oas, Albay also routed Mary Joan Paz, 11-1, 11-2, 11-2, and Derina Quitoriano, 11-1, 11-1, 11-1, in bagging her first gold in the five-day sportfest serving as national team tryouts to the Asian Paralympic Games in Indonesia in early October.
