Re: Should Nigeria Reconsider Olympic Participation?

In my opinion, controversially, the availability of government funding for Olympics may be the root cause of Nigeria under performance.

It creates perverse incentives the officialdom mess and corruption we see at every Olympics games.

Re: Blessing Okagbare fails drug test, out of Tokyo 2020

The word on the street is that there was an explosion of doping in 2020 when the pandemic meant that checks by WADA were almost non existent. A lot of the benefits of that free reign to dope have helped many athletes through into 2021.

Re: CAF Champions League in disarray

Apparently the VAR was working, at least the screens were, during the Game https://i.imgur.com/oWHCvqH.png Which is why Wydad were incensed.
