The Egyptians who won the women’s gold medal at the expense of their Nigerian counterparts won the first set but Segun Toriola restored parity for Nigeria when he dumped his opponent 3-1.

That set the stage for Africa’s number one, Aruna Quadri to offset his bitter rival, Mohammed Umar to hand Nigeria the gold medal.

The victory qualifies Nigeria for the table tennis event of the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
