Don’t Crucify Osayemi –Ajunwa


Atlanta Olympic Games gold medalist in Long Jump, Chioma Ajunwa believes Osayemi  Oludamola, who tested positive for banned stimulant at theDelhi 2010 Commonwealth Games  need moral support from Nigerians instead of condemnation.

Osayemi, won a controversial gold medal of the 100m race in Delhi Games, but was stripped  of the medal by the organisers of the Games.

Ajunwa said this is a trying period for the Nigerian girl who has done so much for the  country in her chosen career.

“What happened to Osayemi was an unfortunate incident. I don’t like the way people are  castigating the lady. I think what she needs now is our moral support because I believe  she did not take the banned stimulant deliberately to enhance her performance at the  Commonwealth Games.

“The Sports Ministry, Athletics Federation of Nigeria, AFN and all Nigerians should not  abandon Osayemi at this period. We should support our own no matter what happened,” said  Ajunwa on Brila f.m
