Our relay team need to train together says Okon-George

Former 400m champion, Patience Okon-George told www.ACLSports.com that there is need for the women’s 4×400 team to train together and not separately.
Nigeria’s women 4×400 team of Folashade Abugan, Yinka Ajayi, Patience Okon-George and Abike Egbeniyi won the last gold at the recently concluded African Athletics championship in Asaba.

Okon-George called on the country to readily make equipment available for the 4×400 meters athletes in order for the girls to improve their performances at the international stage.
“In a situation where everyone trains differently, it doesn’t help in the relay. Another important thing is equipment; if we have standard equipment, we’ll improve in our performance”.
“All what the country needs to do for us as a team is for them to give us the financial support, make us train together because when you train alongside your team, definitely the spirit of togetherness is present”, she said.
Speaking on final race, she said; “You know in 4×400 meters, you have to work as a team and this was what we did on the track. We had one spirit, one mind and as a result of determination we clinched the gold medal.
“The next target for the team is numerous. In Africa, Nigeria is number one in 4x400m and we are grateful to God for making us return the gold medal to Nigeria ones more. Back in 2016, the South African female team defeated us in Durban and right now the gold medal has returned to its rightful owners”, she added.
