Onyali Hails Team Nigeria’s Performance In India

Former Queen of the tracks, Mary Onyali-Omagbemi has described as incredible the performance of Team Nigeria to the Commonwealth Games in India but said that the best is yet to come. “We’ve done absolutely well but we can still do better”, as she continued playing her role-model work of encouraging athletes. “You can see that there is logic in coming with a fewer sports. The fewer the better. It is unlike in the past when we come with larger contingent and go home with fewer medals. What this means is that more athletes will have to strive to get to the mark of winning medals before they can be included. It’s the same thing that happened when I was still active on the tracks. Many who admired me had to work harder to be able to dethrone me. I feel we should keep this up by encouraging the athletes and not to go to sleep. Before you know it, the Olympic Games will be knocking on the door. This is the time to keep up the tempo”, Onyali told okenaijaathletics.blogsport
