Help Our relay team need to train together says Okon- George
Former 400m champion, Patience Okon-George
told that there is need for
the women’s 4×400 team to train together and not
Nigeria’s women 4×400 team of Folashade
Abugan, Yinka Ajayi, Patience Okon-George and
Abike Egbeniyi won the last gold at the recently
concluded African Athletics championship in

Patience Okon-George taking on the world with
little or no support.
Okon-George called on the country to readily make
equipment available for the 4×400 meters athletes
in order for the girls to improve their performances
at the international stage.
“In a situation where everyone trains differently, it
doesn’t help in the relay. Another important thing
is equipment; if we have standard equipment, we’ll
improve in our performance”.
“All what the country needs to do for us as a team
is for them to give us the financial support, make
us train together because when you train
alongside your team, definitely the spirit of
togetherness is present”, she said.
Speaking on final race, she said; “You know in
4×400 meters, you have to work as a team and
this was what we did on the track. We had one
spirit, one mind and as a result of determination
we clinched the gold medal.
“The next target for the team is numerous. In
Africa, Nigeria is number one in 4x400m and we
are grateful to God for making us return the gold
medal to Nigeria ones more. Back in 2016, the
South African female team defeated us in Durban
and right now the gold medal has returned to its
rightful owners”, she added.
