“Because all table tennis players involved in the championship finals were expected to be at the Sports Complex at 8am, I could not make it to Church. Nevertheless, I prayed at home. I began by watching other categories play.

At midday, I was on the table tennis board, physically and psychologically armed to face Doh Wabila Christopher, who amazed many people to qualify to the final. At the end of the game at 2pm, I beat him 4 sets to 1, and retained the championship title for the third time consecutively.

Elated, I received my trophy and 100,000 FCFA cash prize from the hands of the President of the National Table Tennis Federation. I also granted media interviews. With team mates, we shared a drink before we parted company. Exhausted, I spent the whole evening resting.”
