Kenyan in Finals of Smashers Challenge

Amon Muinde



Kenyan Junior, Amon Muinde, today, for the first time in three years, made the finals of the Smashers Challenge Cup in the Under 16s category, showing hope that the country can equal others in talent. Amon who beat top African junior, Henry Ayesiga (Uganda) 4/6,6/1[5-10] in the group stages, struggled through the first set, to lose 6/0, before rallying to fight back, losing in a close 5/7 in the second and final set.  Henry, in his element today, had earlier won a tough match against top Kenyan junior, Olivier Kigotho 6/2 6/4 in the quarterfinals, then stopped upcoming talent Sada Nahimana 6/1 6/0 in the semi-finals.
