Meritus Uzoma

Nothin is working in dis country.we can do better if we ve.gud goverment and suport

Endy Edeson

@uzoma: i was shocked that did not win medals except the DREAM TEAM BRONZE. It's a shame to a big sporting country like us

Uroko Victor Onuora

Chierika ukogu also got us a silver medal in the rowing competition.., Mikel and co got bronze while blessing okagbaire and the rest went shopping for Brazilian hair...,

Endy Edeson

@uroko: on the medal table, Ukogu silver was not recognised. Well, it was not Blessing Okagbaire tournament

Uroko Victor Onuora

Endy why won't de recognize her...., wonder why we flopped in the athletic category, we have enough motivation as it is., somebody should have whispered to divine oduduru that if he loses buhari will rule Nigeria forten yrs and see if he won't dust usian bolt.., I can't see blessing okagbaire losing if somebody told her shekarau said if she loses she'll be the next chibok girl

Jeremiah Ademolu

As far as this Rio Olympic is concern, we only won only bronze medal by dream team that's all. Biggest black nation in world??? What a shame! We sleep while other countries are ready for the next Olympic, we're not organise in any way. O ga o

Jerry Maka

Change has enter every every

Jamil Imodibie

D rest countries hv started preparing for d 2020 Olympics while 9ja will start dia preparation wen its a month to d Olympics so what do u xpect Gold medals?Hahahahahaha I dey laugh in Hausa language.

Ezeji Nnecky Chidinma

We should be thankful that they came back with one medal,how many have they been bringing back over the years,change is taking place

Bennard Ahupa

You will see other countries now preparing for 2020 olympic but nigerian re preparing for 2019 election!!!

Jeremiah Ademolu

May be our government thought they'll pick gold medals in street of Brazil or any of their shopping centers.

Jeremiah Ademolu

Na how dem go share dat money wey dat Japanese surgeon give dem, dem go dey talk abt now. Yeye dey mess! Hahahahahahaha

Endy Edeson

@chidinma: hehehe... real change for Naija. @Bennard: it's crystal clear that Politics is more important than sports in Nigeria, even when the politics does not bring a popular leadership. @UROKO: i like your logic
 

Austin Danielson

How can china came third with 70 medals and Great britain's 67 medals as second?

Endy Edeson

@daniel: very good question. you wonder right? It's not the numbers but GOLD, BRONZE also matters. China got higher medals to take 2nd despite 67 medals. for instance, You can not compare a country with 10 Gold with a Country with 20 Silvers. That's how it works

Edwin Scott

We have Adekunle Gold and joker silver so we don't need more hahahah

Crmde Okwaa Chuks

2019 election is more important to Nigeria than 2020 Olympics...
