    This what you get when most of the original relay runners have gone home with the 10 disqualified athletes, in addition to Okagbare saga. Then you convert your long jumper, hurdler and 400m runner, to fill in the vacant position in the 4×100 relay. They even tried to make 6th position.

    Let’s come home and prepare for 2024 olympics, it is not far again.

     
  • See as bad luck everywhere just they follow this buhari government.

     
  • A hurdler
    A sprinter
    A 400m runner
    A long jumper

    Coming together to run a relay. Kudos to the girls for the brave attempt but really the AFN and Sports ministry should be tired of ridiculing us at all times.

    So this means that if one of the quartet above was unavailable then they would have called on maybe one of the wrestlers to complete the team.

    After Tokyo rather than start preparing for 2024 Olympics it’s election and other irrelevancies that would be their concentration.

    Then February 2024 they will start to prepare for the Olympics

      Ok…I promised not to laugh, but please permit me to laugh at this…

    Since this regime is good at borrowing from China, Sunday Dare can as well borrow medals from China on his way back home so that his worshippers can have something to praise him for, for his competence and HIGH STANDARDS of delivery, because it seems the tripled prize money bribe he offered the remaining athletes to haul medals in a bid to cover his shame and pancake this global shame isn’t working.
