The failure of Rwandan athletes is just an outcome of poor management from the local athletics body. Like in Kenya where I live, good preparation always begins with youngsters and it’s a long and sustained process.
I am not happy with the Ministry of Sports and respective sports bodies who fail to capitalise on the huge natural potential of Rwandans in sports.
Thank you Eric; indeed it’s a very big and huge shame to the authorities in the Ministry of Sports. Sport does not only mean soccer. They should at least try to give due consideration to the other sports disciplines and athletics whom I think are likely to do well.
Athletes only require early youth preparations in primary and secondary schools and continuous training. Otherwise, we will keep on looking at other countries being awarded medals as if we have no brains or legs.
