ABUJA â€“ Shot Put sensation, Vivian Chukwuemeka has blamedÂ poor weather for her poor performance at the Mobil Athletics Championship held at the Abuja National Stadium.
Vivian, whose 17.31 metresÂ mark wasÂ a far cry from the 17.58m she made in the previous week during the grand prix fetched her a gold medal at the Mobil Trial championship, had earlier vowed to use the trial competition to make up forÂ her poor outing in last weekâ€™s meet.
â€œThe whole place was slippery and one could not glide well, and it was also drizzling; a condition that worsened the situation.
â€œBut there is still hope of improvement for me to make the B category of the athletics World Championship. From the group B, one can make good points to move to group A. That group A category is achievable, and Iâ€™ve set that assignment for myselfâ€, Vivian Chukwuemeka said.The US based thrower is however praying to be on the list of the Berlin World Championship- bound athletes.
