According to Defi Sport, Nandeshwaree Jalim will be attending no less than three competitions within the space of one month.
Ghana is the immediate destination for the player, who in October 2018, joined the French club PHAC of Nîmes in her quest to sharpen her skills. She will compete in the ITTF World Junior Circuit tournament from Monday 1st to Friday 5th April, followed by the African Youth, Junior and Cadet Championships from Sunday 7th to Saturday 13th April.
Overall, including Nandeshwaree Jalim, six players from Mauritius will be present in Budapest; Brian Chan Yook Fo, Allan Arnachellum and Akhilen Yogarajah will be on duty in the men’s singles event; Caroline Ramasawmy and Oumehani Hosenally in the women’s singles competition. The team will be accompanied by the national technical director, Frenchman Cédric Rouleau.
“I will make the most of the tournaments to improve myself further. Since I joined the French club last October, I have progressed a lot. The tournaments will help me a lot in my quest to qualify for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games or even Paris 2024.” Nandeshwaree Jalim
Later this year in July Nandeshwaree Jalim will compete on home soil in Mauritius in the Indian Ocean Islands Games. It is a competition in which she is very the favourite for gold; most certainly she will be well prepared.
