Nigerian Olympian, Chukwuebuka Enekwechi ‘wash and wear’ only jersey given to him (video)

Nigerian shot putter Chukwuebuka Enekwechi has revealed that he was given just one jersey to wear and compete in the ongoing Tokyo Olympic Games.

Despite leading his country to the last round of the shot put event at the Olympics, Mr Enekwechi disclosed in a TikTok video shared on his Instagram page that he only has one jersey and has to wash it at night in preparation for the next day’s games.

Other prominent athletes including sprint star, Blessing Okagbare and Basketball giant, Chimezie Metu have spoken out about the problems Nigerian athletes had during the Olympics as a result of the country’s apparent poor sport administrators.
