Africa Badminton Champion, Dorcas Adesokan told www.aclsports.com that the just concluded 2018 was a fulfilling year for her. Adesokan who was named the best player in Africa said she will be participating in all the available tournaments in 2019 to make more points for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
The Ogun born player said 2018 was fun filled but stressful too.
She said, “The year 2018 was wonderful and the best of all. The challenges I faced was processing of visas while playing my games. For example, for the South Africa International, we could not get our visa from Nigeria we have to process it in Zambia.
“Another thing is moving from one tournament to another from Zambia to South Africa, from South Africa to National Sports Festival and I ended my 2018 journey at the Governor Wike Badminton championships. It was challenging and hectic”.
“I was crowned the best player in Africa because I won three Africa Championships in a role”, she added.
On her target for 2019, Adesokan said, “I want to participate in all the available tournaments this year. The reason for this is to wear the colours of Nigeria at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics”.
Dorcas Adesokan won gold medals at the Ivory Coast international, Zambia International, South Africa International, National badminton championships, Kastina mutual benefit, Lagos mutual benefit, National Sports Festival and Governor Wike Championships.
