Men Champion.jpgAlhy of Egypt takes it all at ITTF African Clubs Championships

Twice Ahly Club of Egypt missed out from clinching the title and this year, they made it double at the ITTF African Clubs Championships held in Yaoundé, Cameroon.

From Omar Assar to El-Sayed, the joy of winning the men’s title ahead of defending champion was radiating in their faces as they hugged themselves as El-Sayed Lashin defeated Saheed Idowu of Club Avenir of Congo Brazzaville 15-13, 11-8, 11-6 for the North African to emerge as new winner of the tournament.

Earlier, the Ahly female team has retained their title in an entertaining and explosive final against the ladies from Congo Brazzaville. Despite fierce opposition from the Congolese Chinese imports – Han Xing and Yuheng Li, the Egypt’s trio of Dina Meshref, Nadeen El-Dawlatly and Yousra Helmy played their heart out to triumph at 3-1. This night surely belonged to Egypt
an elated El-Sayed Lashin described the victory as vital, saying, “Prior to the final, Omar Assar, Mohammed El-Beiali and myself had high fever and our body temperatures were so high that we never expect that we could play with the way we played today. Also twice the trophy has eluded as we were denied by Zamalek and Club Avenir but this year, we were determined and we got it. This is very sweet especially against a team that had denied us before,” Lashin said.

For Nadeen El-Dawlatly, clinching the title this year was a bit hard compared to the last edition. “I think it was bit hard this year especially playing two competitions back-to-back. We have prepared well for this championship and this reflected in our performance and we are happy that we are able to hold on to the title this year,” she said.

We will continue to work hard hoping that we can raise our game more for Brazzaville.”

A disappointed Onyinyechi Nwachukwu was however disappointed that she could not help her team. “I am so disappointed with my performance in this competition and I hope that I will get over this easily. It is painful losing in the final having missed the ITTF African Senior Cup,” the Nigeria-born Congolese star said.
