Annette Echikunwoke entered the history book as the first Nigerian woman to qualify for the Olympics in that event.
Annette broke her own Nigerian and African Record throwing 75.49m in the women’s Hammer Throw at the USATF Throws Festival in Arizona, United States of America recently.
In one of her interviews, she said, “I like to be encouraging to the people I compete with. I don’t want to just beat someone on their worst day. I want to beat them on their best day.”
All eyes will be on Nigeria’s history maker, as she will be ready to make her mark on the world hammer story.
The Nigeria Olympic Committee wish you success in your endeavours at the games.
