Ife Adegboyega will not continue his swimming career after he graduates from the University of Ibadan.
Adegboyega got a bronze medal at the West Africa University Games (WAUG) in the 200 metres breaststroke but told ChinaAcheru.com that he will end his career after school.
“Sports in Nigeria is not encouraging. I would have loved to give it everything. We can see the results and I don’t like to deceive myself,” Adegboyega said.
Ife told chinaacheru.com that he has so far enjoyed himself at the University of Port Harcourt adding that he would love to explore the state after the competition.
“So far, I’ve been enjoying myself. We have been in camp we’ve not been allowed to go outside but then after this event I hope I will be able to go out and just explore.”
He further went on to describe the standard of hosting as okay and fair.
“Considering the fact that this will be my first time in Rivers State, Port Harcourt to some extent the standard here is okay, it’s very fair.”
Ife Adegboyega who is studying veterinary medicine at the University of Ibadan says knowing what to do at the right time is what helps him in combining academics with sports.
“My school is a very tough school. It wasn’t easy combining academics and extracurricular activities, basically time management has been of help, just know what to do at the right time that’s basically the key.”
The next edition of the West Africa University Games will be hosted by the University of Ghana, Legon.
