Team Nigeria’s captain to the Tokyo Olympic Games, Aruna Quadri has lamented his ouster from the Tokyo Olympics saying he has disappointed Sports Minister Sunday Dare who deserves more for his efforts in turning Nigerian Sports around.

Quadri who became Africa’s first Ping Ponger to play in the quarter-finals of the Rio Olympics in Brazil was bundled out in his Third Round after being drawn bye by Brazilian Gustavo Tsuboi 4-2.

Much was expected from the Nigerian but he succumbed to the Brazilian who was lowly ranked to him.

He however confessed that his Brazilian opponent was better than him.

With his defeat, all Team Nigeria’s Table Tennis players have all been knocked out from the Tokyo Olympics.
