A silver medallist at the just concluded National Sports Festival (NSF) in Asaba, Nuhu Elizabeth Power of Plateau State has said she had to reduce her weight from 54kg to 50kg in a few days in order to run faster in the 42km marathon.

Nuhu who participated in NSF for the first time in the female category finished in 2hrs, 56:24 secs to come second behind Badnug Deborah of Delta who won gold in 2 hours, 48:28 secs.

In an interview with our correspondent, Pam said she had to ration her meals twice a day to shed weight and undergo training.

“I trained very hard. Since I came here almost two weeks ago, I have not been sleeping and eating too much. I eat twice a day. I have been eating little quantity of rice and taking so that I can shed weight.

“I had to lose weight because once I become heavy, I won’t be able to run faster. I weighed 54kg before coming for this festival, so I had to reduce it to 50kg,” she said. 

Pam, who dedicated her victory to God and Plateau State also advised the organisers that in future, they should clear the roads where athletes would run through, saying that she had to wait for incoming vehicles during her second lap. 

“Well, on some of the roads, there were so many keke (tricycles).  I had to wait at some points at the second lap for the vehicle to move,” she stated.
