Nigeria Tennis star, Funke Oshonaike has disclosed that she’s ready for the Rio Olympic Games in Brazil.
She competed at the London 2012 Olympic Games and the former African champion revealed that she’s determined to lead the Nigeria team to a medal title in 2016.
“I am still expecting to hear from the federation as par preparation for the Rio Olympic Games because there is nothing I can do without them. I am glad that I will be representing my country in Brazil and I can’t wait to make an impression at the games.” Oshonaike said during a television interview on Wednesday.
“Age has nothing to do with me considering the fact that I am the only Nigerian female player to be ranked fourth in Africa. Besides, what about other athletes who are competing with me in Africa? There is no argument that I need to improve on my games but you should be happy that I am among the top tennis stars in Africa.”
