Egypt were already guaranteed six titles before play started on finals day in Sheffield even started.

Sana Mahmoud claimed the first title as she beat G13 top seed Nour Aboulmakrim in a hotly-contested four games.

Then the home crowd urged on Sam Todd, aiming to be the first home winner of a Boys' title since fellow-Yorkshireman James Willstop in 2002. Sam duly delivered, beating his Malaysian opponent in four games to the delight of the crowd.

The G15 was the last one not to feature an Egyptian, and it was Malaysia's Aifa Azman, U13 winner two years ago, who prevailed over American Marina Stefanoni.

The day concluded with five all-Egyptian finals, Omar El Torkey delightedly taking the B15 crown at the first attempt in a tense five-game tussle with top seed Mostafa Asal.

Hania El Hammamy faced familiar opponent Rowan Reda in the G17 final - for Hania it was a fifth successive final, and her third against Rowan having won the G13 and G15 titles in previous years.

Rowan looked set to break the run of defeats as she went two games up, but Hania fought back to take the next three games and her third title.

In the final three matches top seeds Youssef Ibrahim, Nouran Gohar and Youssef Soliman all won in straight games. For Nouran it was a third title, for both boys a second.
