The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Mr. Sunday Dare, has commended the Nigerian Taekwondo team for making the country proud with two bronze medals at the recent 8th Fujairah Open Taekwondo Championship in the UAE.

The 8th Fujairah Open received more worldwide appeal after the World Taekwondo headquarters in South Korea upgraded and ranked it G-2. The event which held from January 31st to 2nd February at the Zayed Sports Complex in Fujairah attracted international players from across the globe.

Dare praised the Nigerian team when he received them in his office at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium, Abuja.

Dare said he was impressed with the team’s achievements enroute to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, even as he encouraged them to do the country more proud at the Games.

“We are glad that you did Nigeria proud. This in line with my resolve to support young athletes and the initiative to pay attention to all sports,” Dare stated.

“I promise to pay more attention to taekwondo and each of you, not just because you represent the country, but because you fall within the target group I am really interested in. When I see 15, 16, 17, 18 up to 25-year-old athletes doing what you are doing, it means a lot,” he added.

The minister also congratulated the Nigerian Taekwondo Federation Technical Director, Mr. Chika Chukwumerije, for his impressive performance and his initiative of early preparations for the Olympics.
