The camp of the Nigeria wrestling team to the 2018 Commonwealth Games is bubbling with confidence ahead of the quadrennial multi-sport event which runs from April 4-15 in Gold Coast, Australia.
The wrestlers, who are expected to depart Nigeria for Australia April 2, are currently in Yenagoa-the Bayelsa State capital-finalising preparations for the Games.
Head coach of the female team Purity Akuh said the wrestlers are in good shape and ready to make the country proud in Australia.
“Honestly, I really want to thank the Almighty God because the team is in good spirit, one love and very peaceful in camp” he said.
“And I must be very frank with you, everyday they keep impressing me, they keep listening to my instructions especially on the strategies we plan to use against the Indians and Canadians, who are our likely tough opponents (at the Games). So they are really responding to training.”
