In the description of Quadri, ITTF said: “Quadri Aruna’s thumping power strokes and terrific topspin are what he is known for, but there’s a lot more than first meets the eye to the reigning African Champion.”
According to ITTF, ‘Inside My Mind’ gives exclusive access quite literally into the minds of some of the world’s biggest table tennis stars ahead of the 2019 World Championships.
ITTF stated that the promo is a must-watch for anyone interested in sport or anyone who appreciates the power of video and cinematic film. “’Inside My Mind’ is the biggest ever ITTF production and it serves as the perfect way to prepare mentally for the greatest ever table tennis event: the Liebherr 2019 ITTF World Championships, to be held from 21-28 April in Budapest, Hungary,” the world body stated.
The world body added: “For behind each action: each swing of the arm, each flick of the wrist, each shift of balance from one foot to another: there is a myriad of decisions made. Decisions which separate the best from the rest.
