Tokyo Olympics: Chukwuebuka Enekwechi Reacts To Losing Finals, Reveals Next Plan

Nigerian shotput athlete, Chukwuebuka Enekwechi has finished the 12th position in the ongoing Tokyo Olympics Shotput final, dashing hopes and leaving Nigeria with her earlier two medals – silver and bronze.

Chukwuebuka Enekwechi had trended a few days ago after he shared a video of himself washing his official jersey by himself. Not only is this unusual but his revelation that the jersey is the only one he was given for weeks-lasting sports sounds appalling to many.Heading to the final in today Thursday 5th August, Enekwechi’s throw of 19.74m was too poor to grant him a spot in the medals table. He fouled in his opening throw, threw 18.87m on his 2nd attempt and threw 19.74m in his third attempt and altogether could only make the 12th position
Reacting in an Instagram post, Chukwuebuka Enekwechi, who had earlier noted that the reality of making it to the finals is wild for him as his career almost ended in 2020, revealed that he is happy with his position as the past few weeks have been a very trying couple of weeks for him.

“12th place at the #Olympic Games. I’m okay with it because this has been a very trying couple of weeks. I’m happy to have made the Olympic Games but I know there are some things I could have done to make the story end a little bit sweeter. I picked a bad day to have a bad day?” This is the first time I had literally thousands of people behind me watching me compete. With new levels come new devils. As overwhelming as it’s been the past couple of months, I do appreciate the love and support. I still have a few days left in Japan to do some shopping and decompress a bit before I go back home to figure out next year’s living and training situations. Yep, there’s a next year. Stay tuned??????”, he wrote.Taking to his Instagram story, however, Chukwuebuka Enekwechi revealed what disappointed him most as he participated and represented the nation in the international games. “What I’m the most disappointed about is that I didn’t get to my 10k follower goal that I set for 2 days ago”, he wrote, adding emojis that suggest Nigerian broke his heart by not following him massively as he expected.
