Three-time African champion, Anuoluwapo Opeyori, says he will feature at the forthcoming 2023 Indonesia International Challenge billed to take place at the Jatim International Expo Convention Centre from October 17 to 22.


The Nigerian star, who reached the quarter-finals of the 2023 Lagos International Classics last month, stated that he missed out on the 2023 Guatemala International Challenge over visa hitch.


He also did not feature at the 2023 Belgian International Classics and the 2023 Peru Challenge.


“I would have loved to play at the classics in Guatemala and Peru but it didn’t happen because of issues with my transit visa,” Opeyori said.

“There are lots of problems with transit visa to those countries because it’s not a direct flight and it’s difficult to get a visa.

“As a green passport holder, it’s sometimes difficult to get visas.

“However, I am looking forward to the next classics in Indonesia, that is if I am able to get their visa.”


Opeyori, also noted that playing at the Paris 2024 Olympics will be a dream come true for him.

“The qualifiers for the Olympics started in May and all players dreaming of featuring at the Olympics next year are still acquiring more points,” Opeyori added.

“For me, I will continue to play at my best and get results that will be a high point for me and a dream to play at the Olympics.

“I want to keep dominating till I become a legend eventually. I want winning matches to be a norm for me, whenever I am playing I should play at my best.”
