Aruna Quadri Made History as The First African in Table Tennis Semis

Rio Olympics Table Tenis: Nigerian Aruna Quadri sent packing by World No.1

After making history by being the first African to reach the quarter-finals of the Olympic Games table tennis event, his hopes of winning Nigeria and Africa’s first men’s singles table tennis Olympic Medal were dashed last night when he came up against world No.1, Chinese, Ma Long. The match ended 11-4, 11-2, 11-6, 11-7 and was quickly over in just 28 minutes.

We pray he lands us the gold!
