Amiri Amine of Morocco has been awarded a place on the World Snooker Tour after winning a gold medal in the African Games.
Amine won the men’s event at the African Games in Casablanca last weekend, beating Abdulraham Haridi of Egypt 4-3 in the final. Haridi led 2-0 and 3-2, but Amine took frame six on a re-spotted black and then won the decider to take gold.
He was subsequently nominated by the African Billiards and Snooker Confederation for a tour card. He will take up his place on the circuit for the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons.
