HOLLIE Naughton picked up another medal from the Pan American Games held in Santiago, Chile.

Naughton, 29, was born in Barnsley but represents Canada after moving there with her parents as a child.

She exited the women’s doubles competition at the quarter-final stage. Naughton and partner Nikole Todd lost 2-1 against Colombian duo Laura Tovar and Lucia Bautista.

Naughton won her game in the women’s team competition against Ecuadorian Maria Paula Moya to ensure a 3-0 win for the Canadians.

They then got a measure of revenge over the Colombians with another 3-0 win in the semi-final with Naughton seeing off Tovar 3-0.

But Naughton’s loss to Amanda Sobhy ensured a 2-0 defeat to their old enemies the USA in last Sunday’s final.

She said: "It's always a great experience and lots of fun to participate in another major games environment.

"To walk away with a couple medals also adds to the experience, even though I did not reach the goals I had set for myself.

"That's sport though, you can plan and set goals but sometimes the luck of the draw, what your best is on the day, just isn't good enough.

"The individual event I lost in the semis to the eventual winner and felt I had my chances to convert the match but fell short.

"She has definitely been in form on tour so far this year, so there are lots of positives.

"The doubles event, we were drawn against the #2 seeds and eventual winners in the first round which leaves very little time to find your rhythm and settle, again we came out strong went 1-0 up and just lost our way which was disappointing.

"Even through the disappointing moments it was a fantastic experience and I am happy to come away with two medals.
"I will keep fighting and working hard and hopefully upgrade the colour of them in four years' time."

Hollie won a bronze medal last week in the singles competition.
