Toriola bows out Rio Olympics, loses to Japanese opponent

One of Nigeria’s medal hopefuls and table tennis star, Segun Toriola, has crashed out of the table tennis event of the Rio Olympic Games.Segun Toriola, who advanced to the second round in the male singles on Saturday, was beaten 4-2 by his Japanese challenger, Niwa Koki, on Sunday.

Toriola, 41, beat Koki 9-11 in the first set before the Japanese rallied back to dominate the second set 11-5. Koki also won the third set 11-7 before Toriola triumphed in the fourth set, leaving scores at 4-11.

At that point, it appeared the Nigerian would overpower his challenger for the rest of the match. But Koki was in no mood to concede.

The Japanese overpowered Toriola 11-6, 11-1 in the fifth and sixth sets respectively to bring total scores at 4-2.

Toriola was one of Nigeria’s medal prospects and his ouster is a big setback for Nigeria’s ambition to return home with medals.
