The 12th World Athletics Championships ended here in Berlin yesterday with Nigeria not being able to change their story since 1999 when they last won medals in the greatest athletics championships.

The best Nigeria did was qualifying for the finals of two events, the 4×400m women and same event for men. The girls placed 6th. USA , Jamaica and Russia won gold, silver and bronze respectively. Britain and Germany placed ahead of Nigeria ’s Endurance Abinuwa, Joke Odumosu, Josephine Ehigie and Folasade Abugan.  The men were last and caught a pitiable sight especially when Amaechi Morten appeared to be running backwards than gaining steps. It was a sad outing for the Solomon Ogba led Athletics Federation of Nigeria which is only about four months old in office but with a clearer picture of the plunge Nigerian sports has taken. Ogba said here that it would take Nigeria 10 years to get to the level the likes of USA and Jamaica have attained and that his greatest challenge was to stop the slide and work towards improving Nigeria ’s position

Most Nigerian talents have changed their country - winning medals for their newly found countries...

10 years... 10 years?
Considering that increase in this world is exponential, by the time Nigeria achieves it's 10 year goal, the West, and other previous world superpowers would have increased their potency by 10. Nigerian athletes need to train outside of Nigeria, and make use of the technologies developed by winners (with the exception of steroids).

      Its quite unfortunate. The problem is little or no support for athletics. The solution is infant grooming.

Jamaica had its share on the loosing streak until Usain Bolt brought back life to track and field. its not only the yam its banana, irish and pumkin and support of his family and country that makes him what he is. if you looked into Jamaicas pass we were not proforming.

We will welcome nigeria with open arms to train with our Athletes if they which, others have come from other caribbean country to train.

My message is dont loose hope for your country one day the Athletes will proform to standard just keep in mind never loose focus on the prize.

lissy seh so
