Egypt defeated Nigeria to clinch the gold medals in the team events of the ongoing International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) Africa Senior championship in Cairo.
In the final of the women’s event, the Egyptian team came from 2-0 down to defeat Nigeria 3-2, while Aruna Quadri could not save the men’s team from losing 3-2 to the North Africans as well.
In the three events that Nigeria featured in, the Aruna Quadri-inspired team had won two silver medals and a bronze medal in the mixed doubles event.
Quadri remains unbeaten in the tournament, winning all his matches without dropping any.
Egypt still dominate with two gold medals while the colour of the third medal is yet to be known until the final of the mixed doubles against Congo Brazzaville is concluded on Tuesday January 27.
The Singles event serves off on Tuesday.
Four more titles are still at stake at the tournament, which ends on Thursday.
Seventeen countries are taking part in the competition, which serves as qualification for the World Championships in China in April.
