Identified Athletes - NIG

  • Stamp NIG 2013 - OG London 2012 - M1X competitor Hamadou Djibo Issaka (NIG)

    Hamadou Djibo Issaka (NIG) is not an
    Olympic Rowing champion as the headline in both souvenir sheets suggests.
    On the contrary - he came last in a field of 33 competitors, 300m'
    behind the second-slowest sculler in this event. He had been given a
    wild-card entry "to strengthen the principle of universal representation".
    Whereas the media and the spectators celebrated the performance 
    of the 35-years-old athlete who was a novice with only three months
    of training Sir Steven Redgrave - Rowing legend with five gold medals
    from five consecutive Olympic regattas - claimed he should not have
    been allowed into the competition at the expense of better scullers.
