Nigeria players will begin their quest for laurels on Tuesday (today), at the 2021 ITTF World Table Tennis Championships in Houston, United States.

Africa’s top-ranked player Quadri Aruna and No. 1 ranked women’s player in the country Offiong  Edem are among Nigerian players taking part in the competition.

Others include African Games singles champion Omotayo Olajide and Bode Abiodun.

Quadri – seeded 13th – will be hoping to go beyond the third round of the competition which he reached in 2019, losing to world No. 1 Fan Zhendong.

He has been drawn against Belarusian Aleksandr Khanin who is ranked 152nd in the world in the first round.

Olajide will also play against Brazilian player Gustavo Tsuboi who defeated Aruna in Round 3 of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, while Abiodun was paired against India’s Amalraj Anthony.

Other are Senegal’s Ibrahima Diaw, Algeria’s Sami Kherouf and Katia Kessaci
