TEAM Asia managed a cleansweep after the boys and girls took gold in the team events during the 2017 ITTF World Cadet Challenge at the Vodafone Arena in Suva, Fiji.

The boys from Asia defeated Europe in three straight sets to take home the boy's title and in the girl's category Asia slammed North America with three straight.

Manager Afshin Badiee said he was happy with the fighting spirit of his team members.

"Performance was so far so good but the result was expected," he said.

"We will continue our singles event and will monitor their individual performance and see what their capabilities are.

"With three days to go we're confident of a good outcome and to prove our dominance in the boy's and girl's category."

He added the players have learnt a lot from the past few days and they hope they recover before the big final on Sunday.
