President of Nigeria Taekwondo Federation, Jonathan Nnaji, has promised the duo of Chika Chikwumerije and Issa Mohammed adequate preparation for the London Olympics, saying the federation has put in place machinery to ensure their good outing at the London Games.
Nnaji said it is necessary for the federation to start early preparation for the game so that the athletes would be motivated to do well at the championship.
He added that Chukwumerije and Mohammed have done the nation proud by securing slots to take part in the Olympics despite stiff opposition at the qualifying tournament held recently in Cairo, Egypt.
“I want to assure all Nigerians that we are going to prepare the athletes adequately for the London Games. Both Chukwumerije and Mohammed have done their best by securing tickets to feature at the London Olympics” he said.
