Nigeria’s Aruna Quadri remains Africa’s no 1 table tennis player in Africa despite sliding to 40 in the August 2016 ITTF ranking.
The Nigerian remains Africa’s best ranked tennis player in the world at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games that will kick-start on August 5, 2016.
With all eyes on the table tennis event, Quadri may be starting his campaign in the singles event from the second round as the 2014 ITTF Star Player will be ranked among the top 32 at the Rio Olympic Games.
However, Quadri and Segun Toriola campaigns in Brazil got a boost yesterday as Frot Group has again put words to action by supporting the players in their quest for glory at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil.
The chairman of Frot Group, Frank Momoh has been supporting sports in Nigeria while he extended the gesture to the Nigeria Table Tennis Federation (NTTF) during the 2016 ITTF World Tour tagged Nigeria Open.
President of the Nigeria Table Tennis Federation (NTTF), Wahid Oshodi, said the gesture would motivate the players in their quest to make the country proud in Brazil.
“This support for Segun Toriola and Aruna Quadri will greatly encourage and assist our top players in their quest to put up a good performance in the Olympics and other upcoming tournaments. It will help in reducing the financial strain incurred by the players in traveling and buying equipment.
Playing at world level carries a lot of expenses and the support from Frot Group will go a long way in assuaging the financial burden on the players. We are very grateful to the Chairman Of Frot Group, Mr. Frank Momoh for making this possible.”
