Games for people with special needsZwolse Jitske Visser and Wijhese Xena Wimmenhoeve reached the final of the Paralympic Games in Tokyo with the Orange wheelchair basketball players. Orange defeated Germany 52-42.
And that match was more exciting than the score would suggest, as the difference was only made in the final minutes of the final quarter. Until then, the game was completely equal. Only in the final stage of the match was Orange much stronger than its eastern neighbors.
Zwolle’s Jitske Visser played an important role as a calling player for much of the match, and Xena Wimmenhoeve saw the bulk of the reserve bench.
The final is scheduled for Saturday. The opponent comes from the semi-final match between China and the United States, which will be played on Thursday afternoon. Both opponents were with the Orange team in the group stage of the tournament. The Paralympic champion America was suddenly defeated, but lost to China.
