Africa/Nigeria Canoeist champion, Ayomide Bello Emmanuel who is the first-ever Nigerian woman canoeist to qualify for the Olympics has revealed that she is calm and eagerly looking forward to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
Ayomide expressing her excitement in a chat with brila.net said she is not fazed by the challenge of competing against other world champions rather believes she will secure a gold medal.
“I’m so glad heading to the Olympics, my target is to make my country proud and to become Olympic medalists also to set a record in the International canoeing federation. I’m not worried about the other athletes I’ll face at the Olympic because I have met some of them before in Hungary and Germany.”
The All-Africa Games gold-medalist who started professional canoeing in 2017 said winning the gold medal/Olympic ticket was one of the most difficult tasks she has faced. Ayo won a gold medal at the C1 200 event at Africa’s Tokyo 2020 qualifiers in Morocco.
Ayomide stole the limelight in March, when she became the first Nigerian to win gold internationally, at the open International Canoe sprint competition in India. Bello also previously competed at the Youth Olympic Games in Argentina in 2018.
