Ayomide Bello Qualifies For Quatre-Finals In Women’s Canoeing Event At Tokyo 2020 Olympics. – Rave TV
Nigeria’s Ayomide Bello won third place in the Heat 3 of the women’s canoe single 200m event at the ongoing Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
She qualified for the quartre-finals with a time of 47.539; however she missed out on an automatic semi finals spot.
Bello’s journey to the top has not been easy as she dropped out of secondary school after her father’s death and started fishing with her mother to support the family. She was also a hairdresser; being an Olympian may change all that.
Bello is one of the first home-based Nigerian athletes to qualify for Canoeing and Rowing event at the Olympics.
