Dane Peter Rosenmeier defeated Alvaro Varela, the world’s number one ranked player, to capture the table tennis gold etaledal at the 2016 Paralympics on Sunday.
“It’s crazy,” Rosenmeier told DR Nyheder. “It’s insanely cool!”
Rosenmeier defeated Varela in five sets, battling back several times when it seemed he may have to settle for silver.
“It is always a hell of a game when we play against each other,” he said. “There were a lot of times along the way where I was sure it was over.”
Rosenmeier has now medaled every time he competed at the Paralympics; two bronze and two gold.
