26 year old Buea born Table Tennis player Enjema Beatrice Ikome is defying logic with her success stories in table tennis despite her tide work schedule and inadequate training.
A graduate from the University of Buea with a degree in Banking and Finance,Enjema, the “little Table Tennis magician” has had a story to be proud of in the discipline.
Since picking 2 Bronze medals in the 2012 Varsity games in Buea,she has gone on to win 23 Medals in Table Tennis in the University games only for University of Buea and IUG Douala.
13 of her medals have been in Gold,3 Silver Medals and 7 bronze medals.
Her complete list of Varsity games medals:
2012-Buea 2 bronze medals for University of Buea.
2013-Ngaoundere no medal
2014-Douala 2 silver 1 bronze for University of Buea.
2015-Ngoaekele 2 Gold, 1 Silver, 1 Bronze for IUG
2016-Soa 2 Gold 1, Bronze for IUG
2017-Bamenda 4 Gold for IUG
2018-Maroua 3 Gold for IUG
2019-Dschang 2 Gold,2 Silver for IUG
She picked up 4 medals in the just ended Varsity games. Her record event remains the 2017 event in Bamenda where in she won 4 gold medals in table and lawn Tennis.
She currently spends much of her time as an employee in an institution where she works in all the days of the week except Sunday, studies at IUG(mostly online) and plays Tennis with the little time left in a very charge weekly schedule.
Besides winning medals in the University games this young talent without sufficient training has also won multiple trophies in local and international tournaments.
Amidst the challenges this young lady’s success in the discipline for more than 6 years now has been simply exceptional.
Enjema Beatrice is surely a reference to young African Women planning to merge Sports,Work and Education together.
