Following the recurring thigh injury he sustained during the African Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Tunis at the weekend, Africa’s best ranked player, Aruna Quadri has been ruled out of action for three weeks.
The injury has also forced Quadri to withdraw from the ongoing ITTF World Tour tagged Qatar Open holding in Doha.
In Tunis, the medical team of the tournament confirmed that the Nigerian had a recurring thigh injury which he was nursing before the tournament, but further examination in Lisbon, Portugal later revealed that he suffered another hamstring injury in Tunis.
The ITTF Africa Top 16 Cup runner-up has been advised to rest while undergoing treatment.
Quadri was close to picking his Tokyo Olympics ticket from the continental qualifiers in Tunis last week, but he had to withdraw from playing his last match against Adam Hmam to hand the Tunisian the last Olympic spot.
