Team Singapore’s Izaac Quek triumphed at the WTT (World Table Tennis) Youth Contender U15 singles.

The Singapore Sports School student, who in April became the first Singapore to top the table tennis under-15 boy’s world ranking list, defeated Nigeria’s O. Usman Ishola 3-1 in the final.

He had earlier defeated Israel’s Itay Avivi in the quarter-finals and Sweden’s William Bergenblock in the semi-finals, winning both matches 3-0.

His title win was celebrated by Team Singapore via a Facebook post.

Congratulations to Izaac Quek for his well-deserved U15 Singles Title and for making Singapore proud,” it wrote. 

Izaac, 14, also competed in the U17 boy’s singles. He defeated Spain’s Aitor Colina and England’s Jakub Piwowar 3-0 each, before defeating Israle’s Uri Almor 3-0 in the Round of 32. 

However, he came up short in the Round of 16 against Germany’s Matthias Danzer, losing 3-1. 

Still, it was a commendable effort from the teenager, who in April said that his dream was to achieve more sporting glory for Singapore.
