When Afghanistan were celebrating Bronze medal for their first time ever in the history of Olympic, Nigeria went to London without getting any medal at all. What is really wrong with Nigeria sport in general. We have over 160 million people and we can't produced fifty good athletics that will represent us so well in the games. Favouritism and beaurecracy is really affecting our sport as it is affecting all our sphere of life. We need to do something about it before All African Games in 2014 and the next Olympics in 2016. Grassroot sport development and recruitment shuold be our focus in the drive to discover new and unused talents who are denied the opportunity to serve their fatherland.
Nigerian born athletics represeted United Kingdom, United States of America, Cuba as well as Germany all because they have every opprtunity to showcase their talents their and not because they decided to jettison their fatherland.
