Ghana’s quest to win more medals at the 2023 West Africa Table Tennis Championship got off to a good start on day two following the Men and Women’s teams’ participation in the medal stage on Tuesday.
The women’s team recorded a 3-1 victory over Benin to claim the silver medal as Nigeria walked away with the gold medal.
Head coach of the women’s team Ebenezer Anang Whyte talked about the importance of Ghana’s win.
“This means a lot for Tam Ghana because she played against Benin’s top player and for the singles Cynthia Kwabi has qualified to the round of 16,” he told Joy Sports.
Kwabi was hopeful of winning her subsequent games to ensure there are more medals for the country at the end of the tournament.
Bello Fatimo has won the West Africa singles Championships title on three occasions and told Joy Sports she hopes to defend the colours of Nigeria once again.
“I have won this championship on three occasions and I am looking to defend the cup again here,” she said.
In the men’s team game, Ghana faced off with Ivory Coast with both teams taking home bronze medals.
Ghana’s coach says despite defeat in the singles, the team put in a better performance and hopes to get better.
Felix Lartey came into the championship as Ghana’s top seed and has not disappointed smothered fans who have shown trust in him. He says the aim is to take it one game at a time and win a medal for his country.
The tournament continues on Wednesday with the singles category moving into the knockout round.
