Nigeria claims gold and silver in cadet, junior and U-21 divisions in boys and girls categories respectively

Nigeria boys and girls won the team gold and silver medals in cadet, junior and U-21 divisions respectively at the ITTF African Junior and Cadet Championships in Ghana.

Pointers to what would happen yesterday were apparent on Tuesday April 9 when the Nigerian boys shocked Egypt in the semifinal of the U-21 with a 3-2 win.

Even the presence of the Africa’s number one in the U-21 category, Mamoud Helmy, did not intimidate the Nigerian team as they ensured that they stopped Egypt from reigning in the event.

Nigeria again showed its supremacy over Egypt in the junior boys final as they walloped the Egyptians 3-0 to claim gold.

In the final of the cadet category, Nigeria reigned over Tunisia with a 3-0 win to add to their gold medals of the night.

But the Egyptians retaliated for their boys’ team in the girls’ finals, as the North Africans ruled over Nigeria in the cadet and junior finals to claim gold.
