"We have no clothes to protect us from cold" – Nigerian athletes in Rio cry out

Where are we heading to in this country?

As the track and field events of the
Rio 2016 Olympics began yesterday, Nigerian athletes have cried out about lack of equipment and proper clothing to weather the storm. Over all Nigerian athletes have poor dressers at the Games.

And as driving rains and cold winds sweep through Rio athletes who are competing outdoors need to protect themselves, but not so for the Nigerian athletes.

“It has been raining, windy and cold in Rio. And we have no kits for the athletes and coaches,”cried one of the athletes during warm-up on

“I don’t know why things are just like this with our country,” he added.

However, he was hopeful that they
will still give their best just for the
love of the sport. And it remain to be
seen how they will cope as the rush
for medals begin in earnest. From all indication competition will be fierce.
Nigeria’s medal prospects will begin with Uhunoma Naomi Osazuwa competing in the heptathlon, Chinwe Okoro will seek qualification in the women shot put, while Blessing Okagbare will later run in the women 100m heats.
