Quadri, who is making his fourth appearance at the Games in Accra since his debut at the 2011 edition in Maputo, Mozambique has never won an African Games Gold medal.



In Maputo, he reached the semi-finals and eventually finished fourth, while at the 2015 edition in Brazzaville, Congo, he qualified for his first-ever final in the men’s singles event but lost the pulsating final 4-3 to Assar.
