England‘s Chris Adcock has said he is looking to do better than what he did in 2011 and winning mixed doubles gold at next week’s World Championships in Guangzhou, China.

Adcock teams up with Gabby White this time, after winning silver with Scotland‘s Imogen Bankier at Wembley two years ago, reports Xinhua.

“I don’t feel any extra pressure because of winning a silver medal last time,” said Adcock.

“Of course, it would be great to get another medal. However, as I proved last time, anything can happen at a major championships and we will be taking it one game at a time. Hopefully by doing that we will get into a position to challenge.”

Adcock and White, ranked 17th, have a bye in the first round. They will play in two competitions, with Adock joining Andrew Ellis in the men’s doubles and White playing alongside Lauren Smith in the women’s doubles.
