WORLD silver badminton medallists Imogen Bankier and Chris Adcock are back on the mixed doubles winning trail after they eased into the second round of the Yonex French Open in Paris this week.

Bankier from Milngavie and her English partner had straight-game wins over Austria’s Roman Zirnwald and Elisabeth Baldauf.

The Anglo-Scottish pair now face their former doubles partner Robert Blair and his Indonesian partner Vita Marissa in the second round today (Thursday). Blair and Bankier won the Scottish International title together in 2007 while she won it again with Adcock in 2010.
