Table tennis legend, Olawunmi Majekodunmi boosts Lagos Inter-Schools Olympics

By Daily Sports Nigeria on October 27, 2022

AFRICAN table tennis legend, Olawunmi Majekodunmi, has donated some equipment to boost the Lagos Inter-Schools Olympics Season 6, which begins on November 9.

The former African number one star and multiple gold medalist, at the weekend, donated an outdoor board to be won by the overall champion of the event.

Majekodunmi, who became a national team star while still in secondary school, commended organisers of the event, Wonderland Sports, for their contributions to school sports, while blaming the country’s decline in international arena to lack of quality programmes at the grassroots.

 “I am happy that we are bringing back school sports and such programmes as yours will go a long way in improving our sports,” she said.

Majekodunmi, who dominated African table tennis scene in the 1980s, is the daughter of late Josiah Majekodunmi, who became the first Nigerian medalist in any international sport when he won a silver medal at the 1956 Commonwealth Games.
