Uganda's table tennis player, Eddy Omongole this
afternoon registered the first win for Uganda
thrashing Sierra Leone's Emmanuel Gboyah 3-0 in the
opening Group 5 men's singles match at the ongoing

The match that was hosted at the Chiv Chhatrapati
Sports Complex table tennis hall saw the Uganda
National Schools Champion beat his challenger 11-6,
11-4 and 13-11 after a duce in the last set.

" It is usually tough facing somebody you have never
met before. I however studied his play and with my
coach's advice I overcame him," said Omongole who
recently beat the 2007 Player of the Year, Ronald
Nyaika at home.

Omongole is slated to advance to the next stage of the
main draw if he beats Pictford Liam of England in the
next match.

It was however not rosy for Omongole's teammates,
Dennis Sekyanzi, women singles' Zura Khauka and Amina
Namaganda who lost in the other group matches.

Sekyanzi lost 3-0 to Pang Xue Jie of Singapore,
Namaganda went also down to India's Mondal Souma 3-0
and Khauka fell to Loveridge Alice of Guyana by the
same margin.

"This is their first appearance in a major
international competition of that magnitude. It
affected their performance. I however hope they will
win their subsequent matches," Coach Emmanuel

Action in Pune Commonwealth Youth games continues
tomorrow with Ugandan athletes featuring in athletics,
badminton, table tennis and weightlifting.
