After working with more than 20 junior and cadet players for one week, African table tennis queen, Olufunke
Oshonaike believes untapped talents still abound in Nigeria.
“Before the clinic, I thought they said we don’t have talented players again but with the few days I spent in Lagos, I discovered that we still have the unrefined talents who just need some encouragement to become world beaters. In Europe, players are exposed to qualify equipment and good coaching and this alone motivate them.
Unfortunately in Nigeria, all these are not available while the frustration across the country is also taking its toll on sports as nobody cares about the challenges of the players,” she said.
