Ejike sure Team Nigeria will medals at Tokyo 2020 Paralympics by : 4:15 am On August 16, 2021

Nigeria’s athletes have promised to redeem the country’s image at the forthcoming Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games after the nation’s lusterless outing in the just-concluded Olympics.

Nigeria won only two medals, a silver and one bronze, at the Olympic Games, but the paralympians vow they will do much better at the Games, which begins on August 24.

Team Nigeria’s Captain, Lucy Ejike, said, “We have been training seriously to make sure we meet up with the standard we set at previous games. Everything is going on well. We are confident we will bring glory to Nigeria. We have world records, so we hope to maintain the records and create new ones.”

Speaking in similar vein, Para Powerlifter, Nnamdi Innocent, expressed appreciation to the sports minister for motivating the team.

“We are grateful to the minister for his support and encouragement. What he did for us during the lockdown will motivate us to excel in Tokyo. We have many world records and our target is to go there and make Nigeria proud.”

The Tokyo 2020 Paralympics Games will be Nigeria’s eighth consecutive appearance since her maiden appearance at Barcelona 1992.

Nigeria had her most successful outing at the Rio 2016, finishing as Africa’s best team and 17th overall in the world on the medals table with eight gold, two silver and two bronze medals.

The team, which is expected to leave for Japan this week, will take part in four events, including Powerlifting, Para-Athletics, Para-Table Tennis and Para Rowing.
