The Minister of Sports Development, John Enoh, has assured Nigeria will have a good outing in France when the Paris 2024 Olympics begins. The Games will be held from 26 July to 11 August.

Enoh stated that the ministry was putting the final touches on Team Nigeria’s preparation plans for the upcoming Olympics, alongside the Nigerian Olympic Committee and other relevant federations.

In a statement by Special Adviser on media to the minister, Diana-Mary Nsan, John Enoh highlighted the extensive efforts being made to ensure Team Nigeria is well-prepared to compete for honours at the prestigious global event.

“Different sports are already embarking on the foreign leg of their preparations. The Super Falcons are currently in Spain, and the Basketball team has also opened foreign camps. Other teams will follow suit in the new week”, the minister stated.

“The Ministerial Podium Performance Committee has continued to give me reports, and teams are also working with them to ensure we return with medals from Paris. We are confident it will be a good outing for our nation”, he added.

While emphasising the importance of pre-Olympic camping for athletes to achieve focus, fine-tuning, and a serene environment devoid of distractions, Enoh also expressed gratitude to President Bola Tinubu for his unwavering support for Team Nigeria’s Olympic preparations.

“I want to use this medium to thank President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for all the support he has given Team Nigeria in preparation for the Olympics. He has always shown he has sports in his heart and we are more than glad to have him lead our nation at a time like this”, Enoh said.

Ahead of their participation in the women’s football event of the 2024 Paris Olympics Games, the Super Falcons, who have been paired in the tough group that has Brazil, Spain and Japan, held their first training session in their Seville camp on Sunday.

Also, the country’s women’s basketball team, D’Tigress, have arrived in Germany to formally begin preparation for the women’s basketball tournament at the Olympics. The Nigerian side is placed in a difficult group alongside Canada, Australia and host France.
