Onaopemipo Adegoke on Monday emerged victorious at the 2nd Chief Olusegun Obasanjo National Squash Open tournament in Abeokuta.
Playing at the OOPL Squash court, Onas defeated Gabriel Oluwafunmilayo 3-2 to win the tournament in a match which was almost marred by a groin injury to him.
After the win, Onas had a chat with sportsration.com on his victory.
‘I’m delighted with my win, I almost gave up due to my groin injury but I had to keep pushing just to win”, he said.
“My opponent was a hard one to play that even if he’s under pressure he plays the same way without letting it get to him”, he further stated.
“This win is huge for me, I won’t say I’m 50 percent or 100 percent ready for the national camp ahead of the world championship but I’ll deliver a good outing”, Onas concluded.
The win is the first of Onaopemipo Adegoke at the tournament which in its second edition is a PSA tournament.
