Paddington youngster teamed up with Liam Pitchford to win medal for England in Australia

Tin-Tin Ho was happy with her Commonwealth Games after adding mixed doubles silver to the team bronze she won in the first week in Australia.

Playing alongside Liam Pitchford, the pair repeated their feat from Glasgow 2014 by reaching the final.

Four years ago they were beaten by team-mates Paul & Jo Drinkhall as England filled the podium. This time, they were edged out by Gao Ning & Yu Menyu of Singapore.

The English pair had game points in each of the first two sets but could not capitalise as they were beaten 3-0 (12-10, 12-10, 11-9).

Paddington-based Ho, 19, said: “I think we did the right things. We had a really good chance. We played pretty well in that match to be fair, just a few set points we couldn’t quite get.

“I’m really happy, but of course a bit disappointed as well. Looking back, it’s been a good tournament and I’m happy with two medals.”
