Sporting have dominated the men’s event of the Portuguese Super Cup since 2015, with Quadri and Abiodun leading the charge for the Lisbon-based side.

The club again showed their superiority over GDCS Juncal in men and women finals of the competition.

Quadri spearheaded the 3-0 routing of Juncal, recording a 3-0 (7-11, 6-11, 7-11) defeat of Congo Brazzaville’s Saheed Idowu to lift the 14th edition of the competition named José Manuel Amaro Super Cup.

A recovery from Juncal was thwarted in the second game with Portuguese international – Diogo Carvalho – wading off the comeback with a 3-2 (11-6, 2-11, 7-11, 11-9, 11-13) win over Russia’s Andrei Bukin.

It was Abiodun that completed the drubbing when he took down Juncal’s David Bessa 3-1 (2-11, 11-7, 0-11, 7-11) in the last game.
