Why Nigeria failed in Rio! -An eye opener for schools.

Reactions have continued to trail the performance of Team Nigeria at the just concluded 2016 Olympic Games, held in Rio, Brazil.

Nigeria, which returned from the preceding Games, London 2012 could only manage a single bronze medal courtesy of “Dream Team VI,” in the male football event.

Apparently, this can be described as a disappointing outing for the country in the quadrennial world sports fiesta.

Nigeria never seemed prepared for Rio 2016 Olympic Games. To do well in any competition, preparation is key.

Sports development policies and programmes are necessary for a nation like Nigeria.

Exploring other sports foreign to our nation may not be that necessary but having focus on our strength perhaps would have saved the day,but such awareness has to be created by the sports ministry.

The sports ministry is supposed to have  grassroots sports programmes, and above all, it's high time extra curricular activities gain ground in schools because they go a long way to develop talents from the cradle.
