Filipino table tennis bets vying for spots in the Tokyo Olympics crashed out of contention in the Asian Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Doha, Qatar on Friday, March 19.
Fadol needed a win against Paranang to tie the unbeaten Thai at 5 points atop the women's singles Southeast Asia group to advance to Tokyo by virtue of the win-over-the-other rule. However, Romero fell short of an Olympic slot as she finished her campaign at 2nd place in the women's singles Southeast Asia group with 5 points on a 2-1 slate, losing only to Paranang. Instead, Fadol landed at 3rd place in the group with 3 points built on a 1-2 win-loss card as Paranang secured her Olympic seat with 6 points on a perfect 3-0 record. Victories would have propelled Nayre and Misal to the semifinals, with the champion of the group qualifying for the Olympics. Philippine Table Tennis Federation Inc president Ting Ledesma still lauded the Filipino bets for their efforts. table tennis articles
