Nigerian wrestling champion, Odunayo Adekuoroye, expresses optimism about winning the gold medal at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.
Odunayo who already conquered Africa and Commonwealth games says she’s ready to take on the Olympic games and emerge victorious.
International Olympic Committee (IOC) has confirmed that the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games have been rescheduled to start on July 23, 2021, after being postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Games are scheduled to run until August 8, taking up the same slot as originally planned for 2020, while the Paralympic Games will now take place from August 24 to September 5.
The reigning three-time world champion, in a chat with an online Newspaper, stated that she would do everything to win the gold medal in Tokyo.
“I’m preparing well, focused, and ready to do the needful that will place me on the podium at the Olympics. I’m ready and working hard on the weak areas, while also strengthening the strong ones.
“Very soon I will be competing in Poland, which will count on my ranking at the Olympics. There is also the Spanish Grand Prix and other competitions. Right now I am doing my build-up and strength training. By the grace of God, I’m 100 percent sure that I will be on the podium.”
