Good Outing by Team Nigeria. With more support from the government and private bodies, Nigerian athletes can win more medals in subsequent games.Now is the time to start preparing for the Olympic games.

Classic case of an ignorant person trying to be smart. So, where would you place countries that did not win any medal? No. 1?

Them try but we can do better. We're just too big and too blessed not to be up there with the very best.


Poor administration, management and lack of the required support has been our bane.
