Olympics: Disqualified Nigerian Athletes Protest in Tokyo

Nigerian athletes staged a protest in Tokyo after 10 of them were disqualified from taking part in the the track and field events of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

The protesting athletes carried placards with the inscription “Why should we suffer for someone else’s negligence”, “All we wanted to do was compete” and “We are not just alternates but potential medalists.”

It would be recalled that the  Athletics Integrity Unit disqualified Ruth Usoro, Favour Ofili and eight other athletes after they failed to conduct the mandatory three out-of-competition tests before the Olympics.
