NOC congratulates Taekwonist Anyanacho, Saidu for Olympic Games' slot

Posted : 21 February 2024

The Nigeria Olympic Committee (NOC) has praised the president of the Taekwondo Federation of Nigeria (TFN), Abdullahi Saidu, and Taekwondo athlete Elizabeth Anyanacho, 24, for her qualification for the Olympic Games.

The Taekwondo athlete, competing in the 67 kg weight class, dispatched Kenyan Jully Musanga in two rounds at an African/Olympic qualifier in Dakar, Senegal, this year.

For Anyanacho, Oly, this marks a back-to-back appearance at the global showpiece. She participated in the Tokyo 2020 Games, where she earned a bronze medal at the Morocco African Games in 2019.

"Anyanacho will be attending the Paris Games later this year as a more mature lady. She is good to go," said Saidu, President of TFN.

"We have more confidence

in her abilities now than ever before. Lizzy is in good spirits, taking it easy with a buildup training here in Abuja and eagerly waiting to take part in the African Games to be held in Accra, Ghana."

"We in the Olympic Movement are proud to be associated with such a rising star, who is committed to raising the flag of the Nation in Paris," noted the lone Nigerian IOC member.
