I really don't know what happened but am surprised that we have no reps in boxing, weightlifting,judo, taekwando at this Olympics..

Banking on medals from athletics and basketball makes me worried a bit cuz it won't be easy at all,as we supposed to have gotten at least bronze by now before track and field..

Let's see how it goes sha

kenddys:


I am actually looking at the 4x400 meters mixed


There currently have the 3rd best time in the world this year

So let's see how it goes

Athletics and wrestling looks like our best shot at gold or any media
Followed by basketball

If only the dream team qualified

You really don't know heh? Everything don spoil for the country now. Sincerely anono wetin we go do for the Olympics sef. Our sport ministry is a mess. Corruption has eaten so deep into our system. Have u heard of any competition organized prior to the Olympics? Nothing is working! Individuals that are even ready to participate were not encouraged. Nobody dey pay any sport person money.. all of the funds have gone into unknown pockets. Make I no talk much cos na very long talk I go need talk to make u see say nothing should be expected. We Don run everything to d ground. Na just go show flag for Tokyo ni.

To be honest this was a big improvement from our girls from the last 31 pts with the US at the friendlies. They missed it by repeatedly trying to get the 3 pts off the arc & failing at it. They could have tried forcing their way in to the net to get the 2pts or get free throws when fouled as they are much better than the Men's D'Tigers at free throws sad.
I think the girls are good enough to beat Japan to qualify from the group.

We know that Nigeria is fvcked but private companies are footing the bills of Team Nigeria at the Tokyo Olympics. Money is the least of their problems.

You don't follow basketball obviously. Nigeria is ranked 4th, the US is ranked first and you say they are overated by losing to the US with a 9 point margin? Despite not allowing three of their best players to represent Nigeria....comon

Nigeria Ranked 4th Are you kidding me?

They played very well in the 4th quarter. How I wished that was how they played well in the rest quarters, the story could have change.
Re: Tokyo2020 Female Basketball: Nigeria Loses To The USA 72 - 81 by Masterito(m): 9:57am On Jul 27
Yes the USA team underperformed in the first quarter doesn't mean they can't win the Gold medal. Nigeria team is not overrated, infact they came to play the game as underdogs. Also note that there are chances to improve.
ppogba:
Watching this match, two things are clear:
1. The Nigerian team is grossly overated.
2. The American team CANNOT win the Gold medal.

If you did not watch the first quarter, do not bother to argue.

I feel ur pain my brother..it's quite sad..sports is a major avenue to Foster unity and peace yet for a populous black country like ours, we can't even be the leading black nation in sports paving the way for smaller African countries...I just kept seeing South Africa and others at various events even Tunisia won good at swimming..

Country with large population like ours arrived with a large contingent and have been picking medals here and there....

We can't even present swimmers,shooters, cyclists, canoeists etc. angry

Point of correction.
The male team is rated 4th and the female team is rated 15rh.
We are discussing the female team here.

Yeah. Mix up.

However by power rankings Nigerian women are ranked 10.

This is ranking after February Oga and this is not the current power ranking.


Nigerian women are actually ranked 10th going to Tokyo.

So how can the 10th team lose to the first team by 8 points and you say its an overrated team?

I never mentioned anything as regards over rated I only picked you up on saying Nigeria female Basketball team is rated 4th which was inaccurate. Every other thing is inconsequential.

You go kill the girls. The Naija fighting spirit was what was on display in that quarter, but there is only so much a team can do when you have suckers at the helm of the country's affairs.
