Funke Oshonaike Will Be Nigeria’s Flag Bearer For Rio Olympics 2016

Elegant Table Tennis star, Funke Oshonaike would lead out Team Nigeria at the Opening ceremony of the Rio Olympics, at the Maracana stadium on Friday, August 5.

The graceful and stylish ping ponger who would be competing in her sixth Olympics is also the assistant Team captain to Mikel Obi who at the weekend was also named captain of the Football team, thereby making him a double captain to the Games. He’s unable to carry the flag because the football tournaments start tomorrow, August 4.

Table Tennis, is indeed, honoured with yet another player, Segun Toriola whose incredible willpower and perseverance sees him as the Nigerian with seven appearances at the Olympics.
