After making the semi-final stage of the men’s singles at the last ITTF African Championships in Mauritius as an unseeded player, Olajide Omotayo, believes he is yet to fulfill his potential.

On his way to the last four, Omotayo humbled tournament’s number three seed – Egypt’s Mohammed El-Beiali 4-1 but the former national junior champion admitted that he would not be carried away by the feat but continue to work hard to measure up with the standard set by Aruna Quadri and Segun Toriola at global level.

“As long as I am satisfied with my performance in Mauritius because it has erased the poor outing at the ITTF Nigeria Open. This will also help me to push myself more and work harder now because eyes will now be on me across the world.

“However, I will remain grateful to the Nigeria Table Tennis Federation (NTTF) for believing and giving me the opportunity despite my. Apart from the crucial wins I had in Mauritius, I think I have learned that believing in yourself means a lot because this helped me a lot when I played against the Egyptians and for the first time I had the opportunity to face Aruna Quadri and this will surely help me a lot in boosting my confidence,” he added.

Being his second appearance at the senior African championships, Omotayo said the feat has really motivated him to aim higher in his career.

“Being my second time participating in the African Championship and getting to the semi-final is really a big motivation. I will use this result to push myself, work harder and continue to believe in myself,” said Omotayo.
