Tokyo 2020: Adekuoroye, Oborududu and Adeniyi to compete at UWW in Bulgaria

Nigeria Wrestling Federation has stepped up efforts for Tokyo 2020 Olympics as Odunayo Adekuoroye, Aminat Adeniyi, and Blessing Oborududu will compete at two United World Wrestling (UWW)-ranking tournaments in Bulgaria and Germany next month.

Adekuoroye has decided to shun money spinning Indian Super League which has no has world rating to compete in Bulgaria and Germany because of the world ranking.


Meanwhile, Nigeria Wrestling Federation coach, Purity Akin has called on the government to support the federation with funds as the wrestlers’ participation in the tournaments are threatened by lack of funds.


Akuh, also added that the athletes decided to compete in the Germany and Bulgaria ranking championships with the aim of gaining points for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games in Japan.


“We have decided to forfeit our participation in the Indian Super League because we realized that India is our major opponent in the world and for us competing in the league, we will surely expose ourselves to them.


We believe money is not everything as the athletes are also thinking of making it big at the Olympic Games which is the highest for any athlete in the world.


Attending world ranking events will surely rub off on their fortunes globally and that was what affected their rating this year because none of them took part in any ranking event in 2018 aside the continental and world championships.


This year we have decided to task ourselves and ensure that they compete in ranking events,” Akuh said
