7 Nigeria’s Wrestlers Depart For Rio

Seven wrestlers, five females and two males, who remain the hope of the nation in winning medals at the Summer Rio Olympics depart Nigeria today for the Games.
Expectations for medals from the wrestling team is buoyed by the fact that they are handled by one of the very good experienced coaches and a gold medalist in the sport, Daniel Igali.
The wrestlers are(females), Mercy Genesis, Odunayo Adekuruoye, Aminat Adeniyi, Blessing Oborududu and Hannah Reuben as well as two males; Amas Daniel and Soso Tamara.
”If you talk about efforts, we have done well and put in over 100% for this Games. All we need is prayers from our people and luck on the wrestlers”, Igali who won Gold medal for Canada in the Olympic said.
As many sports are complaining of inadequate preparation, Igali said that his wrestlers have been preparing for the Rio Olympics since 2013. ”We’re ready but I’m not making promises”, he modestly said. ”I’ll be happy if they will approve our sparring partners to travel. They’re the ones who keep these wrestlers in tip-top shape”.
