The Nigerian gymnastics team have been forced to leave the continental championship in South Africa due to insufficient funds. According to the coach of the Gymnastics Federation of Nigeria, the money used for the competition was provided by the parents of the gymnasts. In his official statement he said;
“We traveled with 13 gymnasts for the event and we participated in the games from Aug.2 to Aug.6 and won two gold and nine bronze medals. We would have stayed for another event but couldn’t due to insufficient funds. Money used was provided by parents of the gymnasts and sponsors,”

This implied that the team had no support from the Federal government. He went further to plead with the FG to not only place their interests on footballers but also to help support financially. He said

“The FG should support and recognize these gymnasts and not just footballers all the time. We went to represent Nigeria and not our families.We have been winning medals and breaking records and are yet to be invited for recognition. At least scholarships should be awarded to the children and this will go a long way to encourage their parents to send them out to the gym for training”
