Tokyo 2020: Olajide Omotayo Reveals Mission In Japan

Tokyo 2020: Olajide Omotayo Reveals Mission In Japan

Olajide Omotayo

Olajide Omotayo will be making his debut at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games; he is eager to establish himself as one of Africa’s best representatives among the array of stars in Japan.

The Lagos State-born athlete believes knowing his first-round opponent would help him to know his fate in Tokyo.

He, however, said he is excited about being part of Team Nigeria to Tokyo. “I feel happy and at the same very proud of myself for qualifying for my first Olympic Games because I have always wanted to achieve this dream, as only God made it possible.

“My winning the African Games gold in 2019 has really boosted my confidence going into the Olympic Games. The win made me realise that the impossible is nothing as nobody saw the performance coming but I knew within me that I am capable of defeating any player in Africa. All I needed was to play freely without thinking about the podium. I did that, it really worked for me in the end.

“My target is to go to Tokyo and play at my best because I know if I play at my best, good results will follow. The advantage of the postponement is that it has afforded me more time to train and work hard for the games,” Omotayo said, from Japan.
