Good tournament for European players at the FZ FORZA Norwegian International. Chinese Taipei continues its winning streak in the European Circuit, and Japan comes out as the most successful nation.

Chinese Taipei carry on securing medals in the European Circuit, having won a total of five at the FZ FORZA Norwegian International 2022, which took place November 10 to 13. However, this time the strong nation saw another one, Japan, winning the most — a total of six. Many European players also got to give outstanding performances in the city of Sandefjord.

Last year, the men’s singles gold and silver went to players from Chinese Taipei, while the third and fourth positions were held by Europeans. We had the same result this year, with Italy’s Christopher Vittoriani and Sweden’s Felix Burestedt winning the 2022 bronze medals.

Sweden has two more important wins to celebrate in their neighbouring country. Moa Sjoo/ Tilda Sjoo reached the semifinals, while a new partnership, Clara Nistad/ Jessica Silvennoinen, gave quite the fight in the women’s doubles final against Chinese Taipei’s Chang Ching Hui/ Yang Ching Tun, losing 21-14, 12-21, 15-21, thus finishing as runner-ups.

Poland’s Paulina Hankiewicz/ Magdalena Swierczynska and Wiktor Trecki/ Magdalena Swierczynska finished in third-fourth place in women’s doubles and mixed doubles respectively. Sharon Bauer, who finished in the last edition as runner-up with William Villeger, is this year’s mixed doubles champion together with Lucas Corvee. This makes it the third medal of the year for the French pair.
