Elegant Table Tennis star, Funke Oshonaike would lead out Team Nigeria at the Opening ceremony of the Rio Olympics, at the Maracana stadium on Friday, August 5.

The graceful and stylish ping ponger who would be competing in her sixth Olympics is also the assistant Team captain to Mikel Obi who at the weekend was also named captain of the Football team, thereby making him a double captain to the Games. He’s unable to carry the flag because the football tournaments start tomorrow, August 4.

Table Tennis, is indeed, honoured with yet another player, Segun Toriola whose incredible willpower and perseverance sees him as the Nigerian with seven appearances at the Olympics.

      How on God’s green earth is being your country’s flag bearer “trivial”? You do realize that is one of the highest honors an athlete can receive . Sometimes its ok to simply say Good job.

    @Md it might be trivial to you, but will mean a whole lot to someone else, and if she had not worked hard to earn it that spot would not be given to her, so yes GO girl
