Opponents from Hong Kong only managed to reduce in the final fourth end. For Andrejčík, this is his second triumph in Tokyo, he also enjoyed gold in an individual competition. Balcová was eighth among the individuals, Strehársky 21.

The Slovak national team did not lose even at the doubles tournament. They advanced to the semifinals as the winners of the A-group with a 100% balance, when they gradually defeated the Brazilians 7: 3, declassified the Portuguese 10: 1 and did not give the British a chance (8: 0).

In the final group match, they lost to Canada 2: 3, but in the last end he managed to turn the situation to 4: 3. Even in the semifinals with the Russian team, they made up for the loss. After the second end, they lost 1: 2, but the other two won 2: 0 and advanced.

This is the tenth medal for the Slovak team in Tokyo, with four gold, two silver and four bronze medals.

“It’s been nerves all day, dramatic, balanced, challenging duels, but I’m happy with how it turned out. We worked for five years to give a good result. For the last three months, they’ve only lived sideways and it has paid off.

At the same time, everything was different in Tokyo than it was five years ago in Rio. And yet we win and take the same medal. Maybe it’s because we tried not to think about being at the Paralympics. Take it as a normal match, “Balcová said on the paralympic.sk website.

For Andrejčík, this is the second gold from Tokyo, thanks to which he became the most successful Slovak at PH 2020:

“But today, after major heart attacks. Before the games, I couldn’t be sure that it would turn out so well. We congratulated many countries and it was a beautiful feeling. We have confirmed that we are good players. “
