Angella Okutoyi on the brink of achieving the Olympic dream

Africa’s tennis champion, Angella Okutoyi, is on the brink of realizing her dream of competing in the Olympics.

The 20-year-old athlete has ascended 22 places in the World Tennis Association rankings, currently standing at a career-high 498th in the world. Okutoyi is presently in Tunisia for a three-week period to pursue her Olympic qualification.

This significant advancement follows her recent performance in Bethany Beach, Delaware, where she maintained a ranking of 520 during her last singles tournament.

According to the International Olympic Committee’s qualification criteria, Okutoyi needs to break into the top 400 to secure a ticket to the Paris Olympics. This recent progress bolsters her campaign to participate in the summer games.

To even better her chances the African games champion hopes to make deep runs in the three tourneys after failing to get past the quarter-finals of three separate events since April.

Her first campaign will be this week at Monastir, before wrapping up with two La Marsa championships (W35 AND W50) in Tunisia from 27 May to 3 June.
