    Congratulations Tima and Rosemary. But is the Olympics team selected on meets performance or at a trials? What happens when more than the number of athletes achieve the qualifying standards? The Americans select the first three at their trials whilst the British select the first two compulsorily with the third up to the selectors; the argument being to allow for non attendance or other reasons. What’s Nigeria’s policy? We need transparency. And the reporters must reflect the reality and not make assumptions.

      Nigeria usually still holds national trials regardless..

      This year’s Nigerian Olympics/African Championships trials will be held in mid-June in Benin City.

    No Need for national trials again since only few athletes from Nigerian has met the minimum requirements, countries like USA and Jamaica who has tens of athletes meeting the standards can afford national trials

  • Wow, what an incredible achievement! It’s truly inspiring to see Chukwuma’s dedication and talent paying off with such a prestigious opportunity.
