The ebullent quarter-miler advised AthIetes on training plans, strength building and etc.

“As an athlete, preparing for competitions in an Olympic year requires a well-structured training plan that focuses on building strength, endurance, and skills, mental preparation,

back then, athletes often participate in qualifying events and camps to ensure being on top form for the Olympic Games”

AthIetes, She noted, must aspire to make the Olympic Team following its numerous advantages.
Madojiemu insisted that Olympics appearance means a lot to an athlete later in life as it is a key that would unlock many doors.

“An appearance at the Olympics is a dream come true for any athlete. It represents the years of hard work, dedication, and sacrifice. It is an opportunity to compete against the best athletes in the world and showcase your skills on the global stage. Olympic participation not only brings pride but also opens doors to new opportunities, recognition, and the potential to inspire others through achievements”.
The Princess of Igueben Kingdom in Edo State reminded coaches of the vital roles they have to play for AthIetes under their care to succeed at the Games.

“Coaches play a vital role in athletes preparation for competitions. They provide guidance, develop training plans, monitor their progress, motivation, and mental conditioning to ensure athletes are mentally and physically prepared for competition.
Most AthIetes wait for money before they plan their training, that’s a wrong move as time waits for no one.

“We athletes understand the importance of consistent training regardless of financial circumstances. Government often seek for funding to support athletes, our training and competition expenses. Some of us were employed by state government . We were very dedicated to our sport, and will always find ways to train even when financial resources are limited,”

Every athIete is expected to be focused to make the Olympic team, because putting money ahead of preparations may cost you your place in the Olympic Team, therefore, total focus is advised, she stated.
