It was indeed a historical moment to be remembered, as Funke Oshonaike, stood proudly among five other men, to not only becomes the first Nigerian, but also the first African and first woman in the world to compete in the Olympic Games, seven times.

Team Nigeria stood out in the crowd, with a male and a female, out of the six awardees that received this award. This made Nigeria the only country to record this milestone.

According to Funke Oshonaike, it was an honour and a privilege to receive this award. “I hope this award for me and the country, will brighten the hearts of Nigerians. I am happy and thanks to Nigeria and this hardworking Sports Minister, Sunday Dare”.

Her fellow team mate, Segun Teriola, also thanked Nigeria for the great and amazing opportunities he has been exposed to.
