Drago is the Nearly Man in 8-ball Event.

AsMalta's sole representative at this years European Pool Championships it was always going to be difficult for Tony Drago to take home a medal for his country. However he has done just that!

He battled his way through a 200+ field of some of Europe's best pool players in the 8-ball division.

He reached the final where he came up against multiple European champion Oliver Ortmann, it ended up being a step too far for Tony as he was beaten 8-3 by Ortmann but does take home a silver medal for Malta.

The Medals
