YOUNG Junior Hou took gold on Wednesday, winning Frank Samani 11-7 in the final to win this year’s top rankings of men’s singles at the 2022 Honiara School Table Tennis Open Ranking competition.
Up against the competition’s top finalist of Saint Nicholas College, the 14-year-old of Hung Sun Christian Primary School faced an uphill struggle to beat his rival by scooping a gold medal, table tennis sporting equipment, and a trophy at the Honiara City Council’s newly constructed court facility next to Multipurpose Hall in Honiara.
The young talented table tennis player has once again enjoyed the limelight, having won this year’s Easter Elite Table Tennis Competition in Honiara.
“Today, I am the Father of Junior. I’m happy about his outstanding performance and as a father, I do appreciate the result he has achieved over the 3 days of tough competition.
“He has recently won the men’s single category during the Easter this year so this is his second time to enter and win the final,’’ Rex Hou, the father of Junior told Raw Sport.
The 2022 Honiara School-Based Table Tennis Open Ranking competition was organized under the guidance of the Honiara Table Tennis Association and ended yesterday with excitement, competition, top rankings, fun, and prizes.
