OOU to the World: Two Tennis Athletes to Represent Nigeria in China

Seyi Lasisi 

Promise Faleye and Sodiq Oshikoya, students of Olabisi Onabanjo University (OOU), have been invited to represent OOU in China. 

This was after the NUGA competition held at the University of Lagos (UNILAG) where they won Gold medals in the male category for Table tennis. Their outstanding performance at the NUGA competition qualified them to represent Nigeria at the 31st FISU competition to be held in China. 

The Fédération Internationale du Sport Universitaire (FISU, English: International University Sports Federation) is responsible for worldwide sports competitions for student-athletes between the ages of 17 and 25. The FISU competition is held biennially; this year it has been scheduled to take place in Chengdu, Sichuan, China from June 26th to July 7th, 2022. 

Faleye Promise Ayomide is a 400 level student of the Faculty of Education. When our correspondents spoke with Promise on his reaction to the news, he said: "This is the first time OOU athletes are invited outside the country, all thanks to God, the God that never fails."

The other athlete, Oshikoya Sodiq, is a 400 level student of the Department of Business Administration. He responded to Campus Mirror saying,  "I was very happy and overjoyed about this news, that I will be selected to represent my country at the upcoming FISU competition to be held in China. It’s a great honour for me to be one of the Flag bearers of this amazing Nation at the 31st FISU competition in China and as a student of Olabisi Onabanjo University. I am excited to make this Citadel of learning proud at the forthcoming competition." 

"Having two of our students in the FISU competition in China is a great privilege. Going all the way from OOU to the NUGA Games and finally, FISU Games in China to represent the whole NUGA body in table tennis, at the world level is an astounding feat." Said Captain, the OOU SUG Sports Director, when contacted by Campus Mirror.
