CWG: Nigeria Loses Bronze Medal To England In Tennis

Team Nigeria’s bid for a medal in men’s team table tennis at the ongoing 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham came to an end on Tuesday when they were defeated by England at the NEC Table Tennis Show Court 1, Hall 3, according to The ANAEDOONLINE.NG.

Nigeria was eliminated from contention for the bronze medal after falling to England 3-0.

Having lost to India 3-0 in the semi-final on Monday, Nigeria faced England with the hope of picking up the consolatory bronze medal but found their English opponents too strong.

In the men’s double, the duo Bode Abiodun and Olajide Omotayo lost 11-6, 11-7, and 11-7 to Tom Jarvis and Paul Drinkhall while Quadri Aruna lost 11-9, 9-11, 12-10, and 11-6 to Liam Pitchford in the men’s single.

Team Nigeria’s hope of mounting a comeback proved abortive after Omotayo in his single game against Drinkhall lost 11-4, 11-2, and 11-4.

The defeat means the legendary pursuit of a Commonwealth Games gold medal will be put on hold until actions resume in the single, double, and mixed double events.
