Minister hails Amusan despite 4th place finish

Following Tobi Amusan’s 4th place finish at the women’s 100m hurdles final on Monday, Minister of Youth and sports Development Mr. Sunday Dare has commended her efforts.

“Tobi Amusan still remains one of Nigeria’s greatest competitors in athletics. She gave a good account of herself. We celebrate her exploits.

“The important thing to note is that many of our top athletes made it and are still making it to the finals in many events particularly here at the Olympics; a competition of huge magnitude where winners are separated in milliseconds. This in itself is an achievement and proof that we are in the committee of the best in respect to many sports in the world.

“This is a new and young generation that will be world beaters anyhow. We still hold hopes for medals in the remaining events we are taking part in”.
