Milngavie’s Bankier crashes out of European championships

Robert Blair and Milngavie’s Imogen Bankier had their medal hopes dashed at the INTERSPORT European Championships on Friday when they lost their quarter-final against unseeded but dangerous Danes Mads Pieler Kolding and Kamilla Rytter Juhl.

The fourth seeds went down 21-14 21-18 in the mixed doubles quarter-finals despite looking like squaring the contest when leading 18-15 in the second game.
