Wrestler Agiomor sounds warning to Olympic foes - Punch Newspapers

Nigerian wrestler, Ekerekeme Agiomor, has warned potential opponents at the forthcoming 2020 Tokyo Olympics to underestimate him at their peril.

Agiomor, who will be making his Olympic debut in Tokyo, booked qualification at the 2021 African and  Oceania Wrestling Olympic Qualification Tournament in Tunisia. He is the only Nigerian male athlete at the Games, after veteran Daniel Amas and Soso Tamarau crashed out during the qualifiers.

    The 2018 Africa Wrestling Championship gold medalist says he is at the Games to make history and become one of the first Nigerian wrestlers to win a medal at the Games.

    “Anyone who thinks they can beat me easily because it is my first time at the Olympics will be in for a surprise,” Agiomor said.

“My mentality is to respect everyone and I have a very strong belief in my abilities. I’m not going there to make the numbers, but for serious business.

“No one (Nigerian) has ever won a medal at the Olympics in wrestling, which is a challenge to me and a challenge to the whole team. I’m going to Tokyo to do my best and I am positive of finishing on the podium,” he added.

Other Nigerian wrestlers who have qualified for the Games are – Adijat Idris, Odunayo Adekuoroye Aminat Adeniyi and Blessing Oborududu.
