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 (Monday) for the Games.
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.
The technical session consists of four coaches; Victor Kodei, Purity Akuh, Oziti Joe, Happiness Burutu and the technical director, Damien Ohaike
It will be recalled last Saturday, the Nigeria wrestling federation unveil its wrestlers competing at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
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”.
