Besides the number of athletes, we must also acknowledge the shooters good performance over the years, especially in these Olympics, he added.

He attributed this performance to the good organization of federations, as well as the involvement of all bodies for the advancement of taekwondo in Africa, and the good championship level that Africa hosts.

“Our athletes honoured us even if there has been not any medal yet after three days of competition. We must be patient and wait for the end of the competition which is set for Saturday,” he said.
