Nigeria’s Quadri Aruna has again set a new African record at the 2021 ITTF World Championship taking place in Houston, Texas, United States after the former ITTF World Player of the Year qualified to the round of 16 of the Men’s Singles as the first African to achieve the feat.
Aruna’s heart and desire was the difference in truly dramatic fashion.
The 4-3 (11-9, 7-11, 13-15, 11-3, 4-11, 11-9, 11-7) win has again put Aruna on the history lane.
On Friday, November 26, he will face Sweden's Kristian Karlsson for a place in the last eight (quarterfinal) of the championships.
