EURO JOY FOR DAN

LEICESTER Lion Cubs No.1 Dan Thompson qualified for his first major European Final in Slovakia on Saturday afternoon.

Thompson scored ten points to finish in sixth place in the European Under-19 semi-final at Zarnovica, meaning he will now compete in the Final at Gorzow, Poland on August 19.

He started the meeting in fantastic form and put himself in the frame to qualify in the top eight by winning his first two heats, and then went on to add another four points to his score to comfortably make the cut with a race to spare.

Poland’s Wiktor Przyjemski, who was controversially included as a late replacement for fellow countryman Jakub Krawczyk, won the semi-final with a 15-point maximum with Ukrainian Nazar Parnicki runner-up with 13, and Oskar Paluch, also of Poland, was third on 12.
