How It Started/How It’s Going
As the 2021 Nigerian Olympic Team ended its run in Tokyo, they took to social media to thank the members of the 2004 team, the only other squad to ever qualify for the Olympics, for setting that foundation. They named them all by name in a heartfelt post. @UVAWomensHoops alum Aisha Mohammed is the only player to have been part of both teams. She wore No. 9 in both Tokyo and Athens. Check out the team photos for the pics of the 19-year old at the beginning of her career and the 35-year-old who has stated she will be retiring from playing.
Check out the team’s Instagram for a larger version of the photos.
