Wetherill disappointed by defeat

Wetherill's Paralympics is now over after GB's team defeat

Torpoint's David Wetherill says he is disappointed that he and his GB team-mates lost to China in the Paralympic table tennis.

The hosts, who are the favourites, won 3-0 in the last 16 match.

"After the match I was so disappointed with the result," said Wetherill, who trains in Plymouth.

"I know they were massive favourites but I thought if we played well we could make a name for ourselves and really cause a massive upset."

Wetherill played in the doubles match with Will Bailey as they lost 11-4, 11-7, 11-9.

"I really didn't play that well," Wetherill said.

"I was a little overawed by the whole situation of playing China in China and it was massive."
