D’tigress and Flammes Carolo forward, Evelyn Akhator has stated that she is happy with the postponement of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic games.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) president Thomas Bach on Tuesday announced the decision in agreement with Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to postpone the Olympics until 2021.

Akhator speaking in a chat with brila fm said the pandemic came as a shock to everyone and no one was ready for it.


“Nobody was ready for this plague and we as athletes we don’t even know when this will be over and I pray it’s over soon. We were just hoping that the Olympics should be postponed because we are not ready to play basketball with all of these happenings. I think postponing it is a good thing.” She concluded.
