Olympics 2000 silver medalist in the women 100m hurdles, Gloria Alozie is on the wish list of Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) technical director, Brown Ebewele for coaches that will make the team to the 2020 Games in Tokyo, Japan.

Alozie’s 12.44 seconds remains the African and national record in the event and based on the fact that Tobi Amusan is in the top five contenders for medals in Tokyo, 2020, Ebewele said it would be wise to have Alozie in the coaching crew to give useful tips to the up and coming Amusan who finished fourth at the World Championships in Doha, Qatar.
