Jasmin Ouschan has won the Eurotourís 2016 Trevison Open, held at the Best Western Treviso Hotel in Italy.
Despite suffering from a bad back she played on through the event to defeat Christine Wiechert of Germany 7-2 in the final. This was Wiecherts first appearance in a Eurotour final and seemed jaded after several tough matches in the run-up to the final against Ouschan.
I had a rough start into the event. I lost my opener and did not perform well. I had bad back problems before this event and I even had to cancel my participation into the menís event earlier this week.
My back still kind of hurts but it got better and so did my performance. In the end, this trophy is a nice reward for all the pain and efforts.
Afterwards, Ouschan was forced to withdraw from the WPBA US Open in Pittsburgh after her back problems worsened. She has begun physiotherapy and is hoping to be fit for the European Championships held in her homeland, Austria, starting on the 2nd of April 2016.
