D’Tigress and Butler Bulldog women basketball club guard Upe Atosu remains confident Nigeria prove doubters wrong at this year’s Olympic Games after their performance at the just-concluded Olympic qualifying tournament.
A performance that saw Nigeria make huge progress in the latest FIBA world ranking.
Speaking on BrilaFM, Atosu expressed delight at Nigeria’s return to the Olympics basketball women event after missing back to back editions.
She further commended her colleagues for getting the job done as they look forward to cause more surprise at Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
“I’m super excited for these girls you know they’ve been committed, determined, they’ve been hard working and it has actually paid off. It has been a long time that the D’Tigress team made the Olympics and been in this coming Olympics 2020.
“I’m super excited that we the D’Tigress will be there and with the ranking so far we deserve and I know that at the Olympics, we are going to shock the world.”
