AFN President, Solomon Ogba, told THISDAY on Tuesday at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos that the federation deliberately raised the standard to ensure that those going to represent the country at the RIO2016 track and field do not crash out in the first rounds of their events.

"The Olympic Games is not a place for beginners. It is the summit of global sports where only the very best are good enough to represent the various countries. That informed why we at the AFN decided to raise the entry qualifications for the various events," observed Ogba who was a former sports commissioner of Delta State.
He insisted that despite the hues and cries from a section of the sporting press and athletes, "there is no way we are going to lower the standards because we want the very few athletes that are going to represent Nigeria in Rio2016 to be the type that are capable of making the finals of their various events.
"Take for instance a situation where the champion of the women's long jump event is a dismal 6.3m jumper. What can that standard fetch Nigeria even if it meets the Olympic qualification standard? queried the AFN chief.
Ogba also faulted those calling for a closed camp for the Brazil-bound athletes.
