Olympics: A Nigerian woman to compete in Marathon!!

Esther Obiekwe is not a full time athlete due to her work schedule as a banker, She has participated in some of the world’s top marathons including Athens, Berlin, Boston, Dubai and now the Olympic Games.

Out of these, only the Boston and the Olympics require one to run a competitive time in a previous marathon to qualify. She qualified for both and have been selected to represent Nigeria in the Olympics.

This means she will run the marathon on August 5 in London as a part of the Nigeria Olympic team. She was nominated by the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN), We hope and pray she does us proud.
