RIO 2016: Aruna Quadri Keeps The Flag Flying, Shocks 5th Seed Chuang In Table Tennis



Meanwhile, table tennis player Aruna Quadri pulled off a shock in Rio 2016 by beating fifth seeded player Chih-Yuan Chuang.

Quadri, who beat Slovakia’s Wang Yang 4-2 in Round 2, outclassed the Taiwanese player 4-0 in the men’s Singles event at Rio 2016.

It is the biggest win of his career thus far, as he cruised 11-6, 12-10, 11-6 and 11-7, without Chuang even winning a game.

With the legendary Segun Toriola knocked out by Japan’s Niwa Koki, and Funke Oshonaike already bundled out, Quadri’s victory ensures Africa will get another representative in Game Four.
