Where are those LIBers that said she was a local champion and won't go far in any international competition?. She has rubbed shame on your faces. Nigerians just have a way of dampening someones spirit. Its too bad. Because your are so unsuccessful, you want to get her into the same pit. Tufiakwa!linda post my comment NOW!

Linda, one of the ads on your site triggers malaware/virus alerts. Plus, the pages are loading very slowly, because of attack sites hiding as ads on your site. Just an fyi.

I'm in the UK married to a Nigerian man. My kids have a Nigerian name. I am proud of this girl. However Nigerain government need to pay for her to be taught technique. She got this by raw talent. If she was trained like the Gold medalist she was going to win. Pretty athlete too.

adaramola oluwasola said...

She's my great-aunt. I love u Anty blessing!!!

Anonymous said...

Now watch how the leeches in the Nigerian Government will start claiming her. Zero support for these athletes! I'm sure these performance is all her and possibly private financing. No wonder they all end up defecting to other countries. Na for them to carry their pot bellies to collect Estacode and pack their girlfriends in the name of "contingent". Rubbish!

It is good to know that someone is making us proud. But the question is, what are the men doing?
