Nigerian athletics head caoch, Innocent Egbunike is excited about the fitness of his athletics as they gear up for their events that roll off the blocks on Friday.

Egbunike, a quarter-miler of international repute during his time says he is not under pressure because Team Nigeria are yet to win any medal of any colour.

‘’There is absolutely no pressure on me or the team. We are concerned about our events and we are doing everything to do well. I am happy that all the athletes are fit.

My prayer is that their fitness sustain them to the medals”,  said Egbunike who was described as not ‘’Innocent” by former President of Kenya, Arap Moi because of his amazing 400m 44.17 seconds run that displaced a Kenyan at the All Africa Games in 1987.
