Hon. Daniel Igali, the President of the Nigeria Wrestling Federation has said he is impressed with his side's outing at the just concluded Oceania Africa Wrestling Olympic qualifying Tournament in Tunisia.

This comes after four more athletes from the country qualified to the one on the ground to make a total of 5 wrestlers for Nigeria’s Olympic sojourn.

Igali speaking in a chat with www.brila.net stressed that though five slots were what the Federation achieved eventually, they wanted more and revealed that it was a miss losing Blessing Onyebuchi to injury a few days to the Oceania Africa Olympic qualifiers.

He added that they didn’t quite meet up with the target expected for the men who had only Ekerekeme Agiomor qualifying out of the five men that made the trip, unlike the women who qualified three out of four.
