Two gold, one silver and three bronze medals – these are the final results of the Slovak disabled athletes who competed at the 14th Paralympic Games in London. Yet, Slovakia did not match its results from Beijing in 2010 when it won two gold, three silver and one bronze, the SITA newswire reported on September 9.
The most successful athlete of the 34-member Slovak team was table tennis player Ján Riapoš, who won both single and double table tennis tournaments. Riapoš already has four gold and one silver medal from the Paralympics.
Blind athlete Vladislav Janovjak and his guide Róbert Mitošinko won the final bronze medal in a cycling competition that took place on Saturday, September 8.
Other medals were won by table tennis player Richard Csetey, who finished second, table tennis player Alena Kánová, who won bronze in the doubles, and shooter Veronika Vadovičová, who finished third.
