Regina Enofe, coach of Nigeria’s only representative in the rowing event at the Tokyo Olympics, Esther Toko, has commended the performance of the 19-year-old after she finished fifth in her first event.

Toko got Team Nigeria’s campaign off when she took part in the women’s single scull event on Friday.

Despite finishing in the fifth position, she progressed to the next stage which is the repechage where she stands a chance of qualifying for the quarter-finals.

“Esther did very well being her first outing in the Olympics. She has moved to the next level and hoping to qualify for the quarter-finals,” Enofe said in a video.

“She was comfortable on the water that’s why she was able to perform very well, even her time is better than what she used to do before. She used to do nine minutes plus now she is on eight minutes.”

On her experience coaching at the Olympics, Enofe said she has learnt a lot which she would love to impact in Nigeria.

She added, “The coaching experience is fantastic and I have learnt many things here which I would love to share when I get back to Nigeria.
