One gets to witness the Olympic Games once in every four-year cycle, making it one of the most eagerly anticipated sporting fiesta across the globe. From Australia down to Africa, nobody wants to miss any bit of it as the frenzy it generates can be felt in virtually every continent.

After a long wait from the magnificent London 2012 Olympics, Rio 2016 Games is just days away and the excitement levels have gone up to fever pitch.

So in the spirit of the Olympics and the buzz it generates, Making of Champions is delighted to announce that we would be moving away from the norm as we will 24/7 cover every sport Team Nigeria will be participating in at the Games.

No doubt Athletics is and will remain our forte, but we would also bring live updates on other sports like: Football, Basketball, Wrestling, Weightlifting, Boxing, Swimming and even Canoeing & Slalom.

So we won’t just be talking about Blessing Okagbare coming through the bend in the 200m, we would also tell you how John Obi Mikel marshalled the midfield, how Chamberlain Oguchi made a 3-point shot and Ike Diogu’s rebounds, not also forgetting Johnny Akinyemi’s paddling in the waters.

Keep tabs with us across all our social media platforms as we bring you live updates and analysis on all these events we have mentioned and many more.
Also we would have preview and review stories for anything you missed or might want to know, in case you are interested in finding out about schedules of Team Nigeria.

We have a media team very poised for the Olympics to bring the best coverage of the Games, just as we have done with other Championships.

So why don’t you keep a date with us during and after the Olympics, as we guarantee you the best of sports reporting, hoping that Team Nigeria will make us all proud.

Athletics coverage was a discovery, having to move away from regularly writing about Football. Although it was initially daunting, but now being an authority in it makes the past effort worthwhile. From travelling on the same international flight with Nigerian athletes, to knowing you could easily interview: World Record holder Tobi Amusan, then Ese Brume, I have cut my teeth in this beat earning the trust of Athletics sources.
