The Minister of Sports Development, Senator John Owan Enoh, has tasked sports federations to beat the Olympic record achieved at the Atlanta 1996 Games.

It will be noted Team Nigeria which had Mary Onyali as its flagbearer, finished the Games ranked 32nd after securing two gold, one silver and one bronze medals.

The Minister made the call in Abuja on Thursday at the Ministerial Strategic Technical Meeting aimed at preparing Team Nigeria for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The meeting with the Olympics-bound sports federations was aimed at creating a detailed plan and training programs for Team Nigeria to shine in Paris.

“The strategies will be reviewed by the Federation and Elite Athletes Department (FEAD) and the Ministerial Podium Performance Committee to guarantee Team Nigeria’s medal-winning path. 

“Surpassing our best Olympic performance is a goal that we should aim to meet. We must build on our past successes and strive for excellence in Paris 2024.

“The combination of domestic camping and foreign training tours is essential. It ensures our athletes are well-prepared and ready to compete at the highest level,” the minister stated.

It was gathered that 88 athletes have so far qualified for the Olympic while others are still in the qualification process.

In preparation for the Games, the domestic camping will officially open in Abuja, Lagos, Bayelsa and Ibadan during the weekend while foreign training tours will take place thereafter with the US, Germany, Spain, Italy, amongst top destinations pencilled down.
