Nigeria Paralympics 2016 team returns home after 8 Gold medals


The Nigeria Paralympics 2016 record-setting athletes have returned to the country. They received a rousing welcome at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport Reception Ground as they returned home from Brazil.I hate to be a prophet of doom but this athlete will probably join our other great paralympians who had done the country proud but were quickly forgotten after the celebrations.

These athletes should be made national heroes for what they achieved at the 2016 Paralympics,sadly,things are not done like that in Nigeria.
We have read in disgust and seen what happened to our other athletes who were neglected and left to wallow in poverty and dejection after serving their fatherland.
How many medals did Nigeria win in 2016 Olympics with abled body athletes?One,a Bronze.Yet these athletes with all their challeneges and discouraement in Nigeria go away and win 8 Gold medals!

I really pray and hope that is not going to be the fate of these athletes.Things must change one day and i would really love it if this happened with these wonderfully talented men and women.Nigeria finished a respectable 16th on the Paralympics 2016 table.The best we have ever done in any

Rolland Ezuruike wins first Nigeria gold medal at 2016 Paralympics


Once again,what the abled athletes of Nigeria coudn't achieve at the Olympics has been done by the Nigeria Paralympic team.i saw a story yesterday that highlighted how bad Nigerian disabled athletes are treated after winning laurels for the country.I hope this will not be the case for our new medalists at the 2016 Paralympics. Rolland Ezuruike won the first Gold for Nigeria in the on going Rio 2016 Paralympic games, when he lifted 200kg in the men’s 54kg to beat China’s Jian Wang and Greece’s Dimitrios Bakochristos to the top prize. It is Nigeria’s first gold and the second medal in the games.
The Gold medal was the first in the games for Nigeria but the 2nd medal so far.


Latifat Tijani won the first medal by clinching a silver medal in the women’s 45kg power

More Nigeria embarrassment as outfits fail to arrive for Olympic opening ceremony.

The original outfits that did not arrive on time for the Nigerian olympic team to wear in the Rio Opening ceremony.
Nigerian Olympic 2016 team outfits.Who are the clowns responsible for Nigerian sports? What does that minister of sports have to do before he is relieved of his post?From the outrage of the Nigerian Olympic football players,the dream team having to travel to the venue of their opening match from Atlanta USA to Brazil with hours to spare for their opening match,to athletes complaining of under preparation,not being fed to the latest of their outfit that they were supposed to wear for the opening ceremony not arriving on time!
You really can't make it up,its such a farce.The Nigerian Olympic team outfit had drawn a strong

Despite lack of Preparation Buhari urges Nigeria Olympic team to go win



Nigeria Olympics 2016.I am not sure if President Buhari is aware of how under prepared the Nigerian sports men who are going to Rio to represent the country are.We have seen the shambles that preceeded the Dream team who were having to fly from Atlanta to Rio on the same day they were meant to have their first match.We have also heard of athletes complain of how they have no training facilities or equipments,some even revealed that they were not fed.Yet we want these boys and girls to go win us some medals.Its a joke actually.
As the 2016 Olympic Games opens in Rio De Janeiro, President Buhari expressed optimism
