EFIWE GOSSIP: Meet Nigerian Athlete, Chierika Who Sponsored Herself To Rio Olympics 2016 Now A Quarter Finalist

I have never been interested in the Olympics since it started because of the drama around team Nigeria.
….But this morning I was in tears without minding people’s presence in my office when I came across this write-up from uncle Onyebuchi Ememanka on Chierika Ukogu,an American born Nigerian girl of 23 years of age.
She is a student of Stanford University and is currently representing Nigeria at the Rio Olympics in a sports called Rowing.
This young woman practically sponsored herself to the games. She had to put her school program on hold and found a way to train with the US Olympic team and qualified for the games without any support from home. No one cared about her.
She used the GO FUND ME App to raise funds to enable her participate in this games.

She was not deterred by the challenges, neither did she abandon her country even when the country didn’t care about her.
For her, all that mattered was to represent her country and wear the national colors.
She has just qualified for the quarter finals in her category.
Take a huge bow, Chierika.
You are an inspiration.
Whether you win a medal or not, you have won the hearts of millions of Nigerians and that’s more precious that’s an Olympic gold medal.
I hope that daft beret wearing Minister will understand the true meaning of this girl’s sacrifice and at least go and watch her during the quarter finals tomorrow.
