Badminton on a high

Che Lagoense players swept the board at last weekend’s latest national championship elite round at the Caldas da Rainha centre of excellence. Olympian Telma Santos beat Algarve team-mate Ana Moura 21-13, 21-11 in the ladies final before partnering her to the doubles title, which was followed by equal success in the mixed at the side of Hugo Rodrigues. Fellow ‘London 2012’ participant and Lagoa player Pedro Martins completed a great afternoon by beating Academica’s Nuno Santos 21-19, 22-20 in the men’s final.
