Olufunke Oshonaike’s record as the most successful African female table tennis player stands her out.
The 44-year-old and mother of two wants to concentrate on inspiring youngsters to shine in table tennis.
“I’m the happiest woman in the world today, I still can’t believe it, it feels as if I’m still dreaming,” she said the day she picked her ticket for what would be her seventh appearance at the forthcoming Tokyo Olympics.
“I started training in January because of my health, I trained very hard and we are all nervous here, so I am just the happiest woman to have qualified.
“I can be able to tell everyone not to give up no matter the situation follow your dream put God first in everything, and you will surely make it.” (Nation)
