The final of the African men table tennis was no doubt worthy of a final, a match that was more of a battle between familiar rivals, Nigeria's Aruna Quadri surmounted Omar Assar of Egypt 4-3 to win the African tournament and qualify for the International Table Tennis World cup in France.

Having conquered Egypt’s Mohamed El-Beiali 4-0 in the semi-final, Aruna Quadri showed his class to beat Omar Assar 4-3 in the men’s singles final to the admiration of the fans at the venue.

Quadri who played without any coach was calm throughout the encounter even when Assar was leading, he never gave up but continued to fight.

“I am so happy and I think luck was in my favour and I look forward to play in the ITTF World Cup later this year in France,” Quadri said. your social media marketing partner
