An 11-year-old Nigerian tennis prodigy has emerged as the best cadet tennis player in the world.
Teen sensation, Musa Mustapha, now leads the pack globally, as far as boys cadet table tennis is concerned.
The 11-year-old in the recent International Table Tennis Federation ITTF release garnered a total of 128 points to top the ranking in the boys U-11 cadet category, according to Premium Times.
According to SportingLife, Abuja-based Mustapha came first after getting 128 points. He is also ranked 17th in the U-13 category with his brother rated in 18th place.
Musa’s feat makes him the second African and first Nigerian to top the world ranking following the success of Hana Goda in 2020 where she was ranked the best U-15 female in the world.
The Al-Faizun Junior Academy student – who was part of the Nigerian star team that won the 2019 ITTF Junior Circuit in Ghana – is billed to be part of the World Youth Series (which replaced the ITTF World Junior Circuit) taking place later this year in Cote d’Ivoire and Ghana.
