I’m Glad I Dumped Nigeria For Bahrain,19-year-old Lady After Winning Medal by johnnyvid(m): 12:42pm On Aug 13, 2017
Salwa Naser, a 400m silver medalist at the
ongoing World Athletics championship in
London, says she is happy to have chosen
Bahrain ahead of Nigeria. The 19-year-old
achieved her dreams on Thursday by setting a
new national record to win both her heat in
50.57 seconds and the semi-final in 50.08
seconds.
After the race, Naser was asked if she had any
message for the new board of the Athletic
Federation of Nigeria, and she said, “I don’t
really have anything to say to them.
“The past three years have been a great
transition for me and I’m glad. I have nothing to
say to the AFN.”
Naser, who is coached by Bahrain-based
Nigerian John George Obeya, said wasn’t
bothered by the pedigree of her opponents
ahead of the race.
The athlete said she was simply interested in
winning.
“No, I wasn’t. But I was training hard and
hoping for the best. Coming here I really hoped
to do something,” she told iaaf.org.
“I feel so happy. It wasn’t about beating Allyson
Felix. It was about getting a personal best and a
medal.
“I just had to push through and try. I didn’t see
anyone in front of me so I didn’t know what
position I was at until the results came through. Source. www.pressnewsng.com.ng/2017/08/im-glad-i-dumped-nigeria-for-bahrain-19.html?m=0
