Aruna Quadri, the 2018 Lagos International Table Tennis Federation Champion, has said that Lagos, not Oyo, his state of origin, supported his rise to stardom.
“Sadly, since I started my career in table tennis, I have never received any support from Oyo State where I come from. The support that has taken me to where I am today has been from Lagos State,” Quadri stated.
The African number one ping pong player, also revealed that he started his career in athletics before he became a table tennis star. He said he was a 100 meters champion back in his days at the Oba Adeyemi High School, Oyo state, which he later represented in various table tennis competitions.
