Omar Mohamed & Uche Eke to Tokyo

The top 2 eligible AA competitors from African Championships (maximum 1/nation) earn Olympic spots.

One GOAL of the Olympics is worldwide participation.

Uche Eke is the first Olympian to represent Nigeria in Gymnastics.

I’m astonished an African nation as large and comparatively affluent has been so slow to develop the sport. Hopefully Uche will inspire progress.

Uche is actually from Maryland. Competed for Michigan.
