Pankaj Advani wins bronze at World Championship
Bangkok: Pankaj Advani became the first cueist from India to win a medal at the prestigious Sangsom 6-Red Snooker World Championship on Friday.
Pankaj lost to Chinese Ding Junhui in semi-final and settled for a bronze.
In the quarterfinals, the Indian received a walkover from Michael Holt who withdrew due to personal reasons.
“Winning the first medal for India in this championship and with this level of competition means you have done well. I am an outsider in this tournament and coming this far feels very rewarding,” Advani said of his performance.
Recently, 15-time World billiards and snooker champion Pankaj Advani is recommended for Padma Bhushan along with wrestler Sushil Kumar.
