Nigeria’s 2020 Tokyo Olympics Games build-up received a major boost after Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa adopted seven athletes to support their preparations.

Those adopted by the Governor include Favour Ofili, Blessing Okagbare, Divine Oduduru and Raymond Ekevwo.

Others are Itshekiri Usheorise and Ogho-Oghene Egwero and Ese Brume.

With the adoption, the preparations and personal expenses, including medicals, hiring of personal trainers, nutritionists and other related needs would be taken care of by Okowa.

The Adopt -An-Athlete programme is an initiative of the Minister of Youth and Sports Development Sunday Dare to have individuals, state governments and corporate bodies fund the training of Olympic-bound athletes.

The newly adopted athletes join those earlier taken care of by Lagos, Edo and Ogun states governors.

Most of the athletes adopted are currently part of Team Nigeria’s camp in the United States.
