Teenage Nigerian weightlifter Augustina Nkem Nwaokolo has won the first gold medal of the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi in the women's 48kg division.

The 17-year-old set a new Games record of 175kg after lifting 77kg in the snatch and 98kg in the clean and jerk to upset home favourite Soniya Chanu.

The Indian twice failed to lift the 103kg she needed to take gold and had to settle for silver with 167kg.

Fellow Indian Sandhya Rani finished third with an aggregate of 165kg.

India also took silver and bronze in the men's 56kg category with Sukhen Dey and Srinivasa Rao finishing behind Malaysia's Amirul Hamizan Ibrahim.

Not bad at all considering that every gold medal wining nation have only one gold medal to their credit thus far with the exception of Australia with 4 gold medals.

At least some cheering news is coming out of the madness that is the story of Nigeria presently.

A hearty congratulations must go out to Ms Nwaokolo and her Team Mates and Trainers.

I hope the currently integrated sports program that has the plan to have resources in Abuja and the geo politcal zones, comes to fruition. So she and many more talented athletes, who we know are all over the country, can do the country proud in future sporting events.

Does any one have any indepth details of this? All I saw was an ex minister talking about it on AIT.... Thanks in advance for your help.

Once again Well done Augustina! Congratulations to you and your team!!

NIGERIA: A LOCAL CHAMPION. SOMETIMES BRONZE IS EVEN MUCH BETTER THAN GOLD!!!

First, I want to join other villagers, Nigerians and Africans in congratulating teenage Nigerian weightlifter Augustina Nkem Nwaokolo.
At the same time, I want to quickly add that Nigeria is nothing but a 'local champion' among weak or non-sporting nations that gathered for the C.W. games whose status and standard is far below the results recorded at international events where Russia, Germany, the United States and other 'super power' sport nations are present. How I wished that teenage Nigerian weightlifter Augustina Nkem Nwaokolo won bronze at the Olympics or international weightlifting championship for Nigeria instead of gold at the Commowealt games that consists of nations with very little in common save the fact that they were once colonised, maltreated, raped, robbed and murdered by the cunning and evil British. The bitter truth is that the C.W. games has in no way helped to uplift sports of Nigeria and other participating nations to the international standards. In case you might have forgotten, then I will like to remind you that NIGERIA DID NOT WIN A SINGLE MEDAL AT THE LAST OLYMPICS. Nigeria did not even qualify for World basketball championship that ended not quiet long ago. Our performance in the only 2 sports - football and athletics - that we are best at are WOEFULL in the last 8 years.

In addition, I also want to draw our attention - especially the 'real' intellectuals in this village whom I so much respect, to this C.W. set up by the British. Please can somebody tell me what Nigeria and other African countries are gaining from this so called Commonwealth? How many times has an African country hosted the C.W. games? How has membership in the C.W. helped Nigerians to get easy visa that allows them to work in the U.K. or/and any country which is also a member of the organization. Does membership in C.W. help Nigerians to avoid humiliating interviews at British embassies; being subjected to barbaric and humiliating searches at their airports and be maltreated in Britain? I can tell you with 100% guarantee that today, it is 100 times easier for a Russian or citizen of the E.U. to get a visa to the U.K. than a Nigerian whose countrybis a member of the C.W. For God's sake, 'Why can't we just sit down and do some thinking and analysis - at least once and not allow the British to continue fooling us with this useless Commonwealth which is practically of little value to us and is nothing but an avenue for the British to continue colonising us "indirectly": influencing policies and making money out of us?!" The C.W. is of practically no value to Nigeria and other African countries.

It's high time Nigerian and African leaders understood that if we really want to develop and have/conduct/pursue independent economic, social, military and political policies that completely meet our own interests - and not those of the British, Canadians, Australians, New Zealanders and others, then we must end our membership in this 'good for nothing' organization set up by the British for their own interests and not ours.

Like I wrote in my series "SOVEREIGNTY, ECONOMIC SECURITY, BARACK OBAMA'S VISIT, JONATHAN, 2011 ELECTION AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF NIGERIA," one of the major factors that threatens the political, economic sovereignty, security and interests of Nigeria is membership in the BRITISH COMMONWEALTH!!!



IF ANY NIGERIAN PRESIDENT ANNOUNCES THE END OF NIGERIA'S MEMBERSHIP IN THE COMMON WEALTH, I AM READY TO LEAVE ANYTHING I AM DOING AND WORK FOR THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT FOR FREE FOR A MONTH!!!! NIGERIA DOES NOT NEED ANY COMMONWEALTH. NIGERIA NEEDS TO BUILD ITS C.W. AND COMPETE WITH THE BRITISH FOR GLOBAL POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC INFLUENCE AND NOT BE A WILLING TOOL IN THE HANDS OF THE BRITISH.

WE NEED TO LEAVE THE C.W. WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT AND PERSUADE OTHER AFRICAN COUNTRIES TO DO THE SAME!

Oct 8, 2010, 03:40 PM
Honestly, I don't want to embarrass nor offend teenager Tina by belittling the gold that she won in India. Nevertheless, the fact remains that neither Nigeria, Canada nor Malaysia for that matter could even qualify for Heavrweigh championship talkless of being considered as serious contenders for medals. The heavyweights in Weightlifting are Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Russia, Cuba, Iran, Azerbadjan and 'probably' the United States. In 'serious' international competitions of 'world standard,' these are the countries that normally participate/feature and contest for medals - and not local champions like Canada, Malaysia nor your 'BIG FOR NOTHING, BANANA REPUBLIC CALLED NIGERIA!' Tina does not have any chances competiting against the sportswomen from the above-named countries. This is just the 'bitter truth.'


WE ARE ONLY MAKING A FOOL OF OURSELVES AND MAKING OURSELVES A LAUGHING STOCK OF THE WORLD BY CELEBRATING MEDIOCRACY AND THE FARCE PRESENTLY GOING ON IN INDIA CALLED THE COMMON WEALTH GAMES WHERE NIGERIA WINS MEDALS 'EASYLY' AMONG 'SPORT LILIPUTIAN COUNTRIES' LIKE ITSELF !!!

Mikky jaga,

The problem is that Mrs. Augustina will try using her fake under age to enter a major competition and deny genuine under age Nigerians opportunities to excel. Until the age wahala is addressed Nigeria will never move forward in sporting arena.

I know someone that captained Nigeria in FIFA under 21 world cup competition who was in Primary seven (they were the last set to do primary seven in Northern Nigeria) the year I entered primary one in the same school.

So far I have no reason to believe Nigerians can excel fair and square in international competition as we don't have recent precedent of success without age manipulation.

WORTLESS MEDAL?!

Because the Russians are not happy with the fact that you are celebrating MEDIOCRACY instead of intelligent people/villagers like Mikky jaga asking serious questions and carrying out comprehensive analyis to determine the reason why a country of 150 million is not capable of winning a single medal at the Olympics; can not qualify for World Championship in different fields when small countries like Kenya, Ethiopia, Jamaica, even Bahamas are swinning in medals.

This is the reason why Nigeria has been ruled for 50 years by INCOMPETENT, CORRUPT, VISIONLESS AND MORALLY BANKRUPT OPPORTUNISTS and is UNDOUBTEDLY a FAILED STATE, BIGGEST BANANA REPUBLIC IN THE WORLD AND A DOOMED COUNTRY - WITHOUT ANY HOPE - DESPITE THE ENOURMOUS RESOURCES IT IS BESTOWED.

Judging from all the commentaries above, it's obvious that we have not yet learnt our lessons and still pursuing the old policy.

THIS IS THE BOTTOM LINE!!!

---------- Post added at 05:55 AM ---------- Previous post was at 05:30 AM ----------

THE HIDDEN AND/OR REAL COST THAT WE PAY


BTW, it will be interesting to know the REAL AND/OR HIDDEN COST of that WORTLESS medal: How much was paid to the trainer/coach, cost of sport facilities, salaries of Nigerian sports administrators, travel, accomodation and other expenses of Nigerian sports officials that left for India. If we can get the 'true figures/data', at the end of the day, you/we will all realise that Nigeria and Nigerians have paid TOO MUCH for that medal which is of LITTLE OR NO VALUE. Perhaps, we would have been much better to invest that money in uninterrupted power and water supply, drainage system, build new schools and universities, equip existing hospitals or build more hospitals, roads, e.t.c. at least for a state in Nigeria. If we had done that, our problems would have been reduced at least a bit.

We must never forget (I always try to draw our attention to this very important fact) that EVERYTHING has its cost - direct or indirect, including a wortless medal won at the BRITISH COMMONWEALTH GAMES IN FAR AWAY INDIA. Most importantly and unfortunately, what many of us fail to understand is that in most cases, those intangible things - like financing sports and measuring the result, are much more costly than the tangible things like building new hospitals, schools, university, e.t.c.

BACK TO POLITICS.

And finally, I also want to remind advocates of ONE NAIJERIA that IT COST A HELL LOT OF MONEY TO DEVELOP A COUNTRY WITH A POPULATION OF 150 MILLION especially where a substantial part of its Northern populace are still stark illiterates and infected with 'deadly' diseases.

So, next time you interview a presidential candidate, ask him or her how much it will take to provide all the necessary/planned infrastructures for the country in the next 20 years (and give you a 'break-down' of the figures by state by state and region by region) and where will the source of finance come from. Will it come from the Niger Delta oil or the ground nut pyramids in babangida's mission in Minna. THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTIONS. DON'T FORGET TO ASK IT. AND MAKE SURE YOU GET A DETAILED ANSWER TOO. OKAY?

Second Nigerian tests positive at Commonwealth Games
Samuel Okon, 24, who was sixth in the 110m hurdles won by Andy Turner, tested positive for the same drug as women's 100m winner Damola Osayemi.
................
.................

Recently, several Jamaican sprinters and 11 Indian athletes tested positive for methylhexaneamine.

The drug, which has some performance-enhancing qualities, is commonly found but often not labelled in supplements and products such as nasal decongestants.

As the BBC's Steve Cram notes, the drug can therefore be taken by accident: "If people think a substance is not on the banned list, they take it, and sometimes they are caught out when it is added to the list."

Four of the Jamaican sprinters were given three-month suspensions and talking about Osayemi's potential punishment, Cram said: "I would expect a ban of between three and six months, which is probably proportionate to the crime."

Ifeoma Iheanacho won Commonwealth Bronze medal in Wrestling Women's 67kg and won the same Bronze Medal in the 2009 & 2010 World Wrestling Championships in the same weight category. Incidentally the 2010 World Championships was held in your beloved Moscow, Russia.

HALF-TRUTH IS WORSE THAN LIES!!!

AND IS 19??? MEDALS AT 5 OLYMPICS SOMETHING TO BE PROUD OF?!!!

Austin,

thank you for taking the time to provide this information. Unfortunately, in as much as I appreciate the time you took to provide this information, nevertheless, I must confess to you that it is USELESS. Like I have always pointed out in my posts, I have discovered that our system of education focuses mainly on teaching us how to blow BIG BIG BIG GRAMMAR without any emphasis on how to carry out CRITICAL THINKING or the ART OF GATHERING AND ANALYSING DATA in order to make INFORMED AND CORRECT DECISIONS/CONCLUSIONS. The notion and the ideology behind our system of education is based on the premise that 'the ability to blow grammar automatically means that or qualifies you to be an intelligent person.' But in actual fact, this is not true. I know a couple of people who have a better command of the English language compared to me, however, whenever I summarize or try to get to the bottom of what they have written(or their ideas) to my horror, I discover that IT IS COMPLETE RUBBISH. But in Nigeria, these people will be referred to as INTELLECTUALS just on the basis of their command of their English. These group of people even poze more threat to the society than people who did not go to school at all.A nd this is the reason why we are where we are today despite all our big big big grammar: 50 YEARS, NIGERIA IS A FAILED STATE, THE BIGGEST BANANA REPUBLIC IN THE WORLD AND A DOOMED COUNTRY - WITHOUT ANY HOPE DESPITE OUR BIG ENGLISH AND THE ENOURMOUS RESOURCES AT OUR DISPOSAL. What a pity, the English Language that some of us so much love to the extent that we have even made it the ONLY OFFICIAL LANGUAGE in the country has not been of much help - as it turned out.

HOW TO USE STATISTICS TO DRAW THE RIGHT CONCLUSION AND IN DECISION MAKING.

Now going back to the information about the performance of Nigeria in past Olympics which I claim that it is USELESS. Why? Because the information that you have provided is NOT REPRESENTATIVE ENOUGH for us to conclude whether Nigeria has performed well or not. To be precise, the information does not tell us how well Nigeria has performed RELATIVE to other countries.

EVERYTHING IS RELATIVE.

Like Einstein said, 'everything is relative - depending on with what/whom we are comparing. So, Austin, in order to answer the above question(s) about the performance of Nigeria in previous Olympics, you should had also provided data about the following:

1. The overall percentage of medals won by Nigeria compared to other countries.

2. How many countries participated in the previous Olympics?

3. The population of each country.

4. The GDP of each country.

5. The position of Nigeria in the medal tables.

6. The position of Nigeria among African countries.

7. The position of Nigeria among developing countries.

8. How many events featured and in how many events did Nigeria manage to win a medal?

9. What is the percentage of number of events that Nigeria won a medal compared to overall events that featured?

10. How many medals were won by the countries that came first, second and third respectively?

11. What is the percentage of medals won by the countries that came first, second and third respectively?

12. How much did Nigeria spend on preparing its sportsmen for the Olympics compared to other countries that won more medals?

If you could take your time to provide the data or answers to the above questions, then, it will be much easier for us to 'truely assess or answer the question 'how really good ' was Nigeria at past Olympics. And, before even providing the answers, I can tell you with confidence that NIGERIA'S PERFORMANCE AT PREVIOUS OLYMPICS WAS DISASTROUS/WOEFUL/SHAMEFUL/NOTHING TO WRITE HOME ABOUT.

However, to be fair to the 'hard-working' sports, their woeful performance is not their fault but the fault of the Nigerian government that fails to provide them with the necessary facilities, conducive enviroment and funds to compete at par with their counterparts. They are also victims of INCOMPETENT, CORRUPT, VISIONLESS AND MORALLY BANKRUPT LEADERSHIP PROVIDED BY THE NORTH AND THE MILITARY FOR THE PAST 50 YEARS!!! As the saying goes 'THE SPIRIT IS WILLING, BUT THE FLESH IS JUST DAMN WEAK.

I am not doubting the fact that Ifeoma Ihenacho won a bronze medal in Moscow. Big congrats to her!!! How many medals has Nigeria won in the Olympics and/or World Championship in wrestling before Ifeoma. How many medals weere awarded at the World Wrestling Championship? What was the overall position of Nigeria in that competition? What iis the probability that a Nigerian atlethe will win another medal in wrestling at the Olympics and/or World Championship after Ifeoma? Do we really have a 'water-proof system/structure' that will guarantee that Ifeoma or another Nigerian will continue winning medals at the Olympics and World Championship? Answer, NO. I am afraid to say that the medal was won mainly out of the determination, perseverance and hard-work of this great Nigerian. Thus, unfortunately, based on the above analysis, we can as well rightly conclude that Ifeoma medal is a 'once in a bluemoon event.'

Based on an 'express analysis' of the data provided by you above, I also discover that - and I am sure you will agree with me too - that in actual fact, Nigeria's performance at every Olympics is not stable and got worse - instead of improving. What conclusion can we draw from that? We can conclude that we lack a well defined strategy and plan for improving on our previous performance and are 'just going in circles. Moreover, we spend a lot of money to achieve results that were even worse than the previous ones.

Furthermore, without even asking you, I can tell you for sure that those medals that we won in those Olympics are from football and athletics - to be precise, from track events won by U.S. based Nigerian athletes/sprinters most of whom were students then:like Mary Onyali and others (whose names I can't remember now) In essence, what this means is that even the medals that were won at previous Olympics by Nigeria was NOT as a result of the efforts, good planning, vision, focus and strategy of the Nigerian government and sports federation but as a result of 'individual efforts and patriotism' of these athletes. If not for them, Nigeria would not had even won any medal at all at all the Olympics. Thus, we can as well conclude that it is the sports officials that are benefitting from the resources allocated to sports instead of the sports men. That explains our WOEFUL/DISASTRIOUS PERFORMANCE at the Olympics - and I am afraid to say that we will l continue to get these kind of shameful results if the trend remains.

In anycase Austin, I look forward to getting the answers to the questions above. You will surely agree with me that it ill be fair on your part to allow the villagers tomake 'AN INFORMED CONCLUSION.'

THIS IS THE BOTTOM LINE!

Now, if you will excuse me, I want to get back to REAL WORK before the UNINTELLIGENT destraction.

I TOLD YOU SO!!! DIDN'T I?

That is just the beginning of an unfolding and interesting detective story. It seems that 'The hens are gradually coming home to roost- or perhaps,to get roasted - at last'. We have walked into the trap of the British again. Another international humiliation awaits Nigeria - A FAILED STATE AND THE BIGGEST BANANA REPUBLIC IN THE WORLD. Please keep us informed about the 'GRACE TO GRASS' of the GOLD MEDALISTS and the 'DUBIOUS COUNTRY' that they represent why cheating and stealing are norms.

When the whole drama is over, we will know exactly how much those medals are really worth and will also be able to verify whether they are worthless or not and how much the image (and reputation) of Nigeria is worth in the stock/international market.

Thankededed you in advancemented.

IT IS GAJU!!!
