Nigeria Wins Bronze

National Karate Coach, Emmanuel Metu, on Wednesday said the country had won only a bronze medal from Karate at the ongoing 11th All Africa Games in Congo, Brazzaville.

The Games, which started on Sept 4 would be rounded up on Sept. 19.

Metu told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that Team Nigeria fielded only 11 karatekas at the Games. “It is unfortunate that we could not assemble a full team of 29’’.

“I must admit that the standard is very high here. We lost to Algeria that is ranked among the top three teams in the world at the semi-finals stage.

“So, I must commend the athletes for their performance so far, but we are hopeful for a better future in the sport,” Metu said.

Meanwhile, a female karateka, Sandra Afensumen, has attributed the country’s poor showings at the Games to lack of international experience.

Afensumen observed that the dearth of championships was adversely affecting the performances of her teammates at the ongoing event.
