Minister of Youth and Sports Development Sunday Dare has given his thoughts about Team Nigeria’s participation and the events that unfolded at the just concluded Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Team Nigeria won one silver and one bronze medals thanks to Blessing Oborodudu and Ese Brume in wrestling and long events respectively.
