Wrestling Federation upbeat on good performance at African Games

Posted : 02 March 2024

The President of the Nigeria Wrestling Federation, Dr. Daniel Igali, has expressed optimism about the performance of Nigerian wrestlers at the African Games in Accra, Ghana.

Daniel Igali disclosed this during an unscheduled visit to the camp of the Nigerian wrestlers in Yenagoa on Thursday, January 29, 2024.

Speaking on Friday, Daniel Igali commended the high level of performance in training.

The world and Olympic champion noted that athletes are as good as the work they put in during training.

"I'm really pleased with what I saw in training today; they look ready. However, there's still room for improvement."

"I've always said that athletes are as good as their training, and I must applaud the officials who are working tirelessly to ensure the athletes represent the nation optimally."

Also, the head of the team officials, Coach Akuh Purity, expressed satisfaction with the reaction of the wrestlers to training since they started camping ahead of the African Games.

According to the level 3 IOC coach, the camping has aided the coaching team to closely monitor the athletes, especially their diet and other important elements pivotal to their overall athleticism.

"To be frank, the Nigeria Wrestling Federation doesn't wait for a camp like this; we've been training because we started our season a while ago. So, this camping is just for final preparation."

"And I must say that the athletes have been doing really well. The environment is okay, the feeding is normal because one of the most important aspects we are careful about is the diet, so we're good to go."

"By the grace of God, with the level of our training and commitment and, of course, preparation like I said earlier, Wrestling will win multiple gold for Team Nigeria at the African Games."
