Nigeria’s Table Tennis star, Aruna Quadri has retained his African men’s title, after emerging victorious at the 2023 ITTF Championships in Tunisia.
Quadri defeated Egypt’s Ahmed Saleh in the final of the men’s singles on Monday to retain his title.
The number one seed thrashed Saleh 4-0 to hold on to the title he won in Algeria last year.
An elated Quadri reflected on his victory against the Egyptian.
“I am happy with the title because I have a good and bad memory of Tunis, having got injured here during the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games qualification. Winning another title here is good to erase the bad memory,”he declared.
Hana Goda dethroned her compatriot Dina Meshraf to win the women’s title.
The teenage sensation won the thrilling final 4-1.
