Nigerian athletes disqualified from the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games hit the streets of the Japanese capital in protest on Friday.
They had prepared to represent the country in the track and field events but were declared ineligible to participate in the games.
On Wednesday, CR reported that the 10 athletes were declared ineligible to compete at the games by the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU).
AIU is an independent body created by World Athletics to manages all integrity issues – both doping and non-doping.
In its reaction, the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) took responsibility for the lapses recorded during the process and reassured Nigerians that the nation’s performances at the Olympics would not be negatively impacted.
