Nigeria has always impressed with its attire during the event, but this year the story was different.
According to Sports Illustrated senior writer Alexander Wolff, covering Rio Olympics, the delegation was forced to wear tracksuits for the opening ceremony after their planned attire didn’t make it to Rio in time.
He wrote: “Nigeria, marching in sweats because official outfits didn’t make it to Rio. Can we agree that they’re a country to pull for these two weeks?”
Sports journalist Colin NOT Collins also tweeted: “Apparently, Nigeria are on tracksuits because the official outfits yet to get to Brazil. How much more can we take?”
This is coming a day after the soccer team barely arrived in Brazil before its opening-round game because they were stranded in Atlanta.
