Ghana Taekwondo Star Eunice Omolara Adedapo has suggested she nearly quit the sport after growing tired combining Taekwondo and her education.
The visibly passionate athlete made the revelations in an interview with Eze1 TV’s Christian Chibueze on Sports Connect on Thursday.
Speaking on the challenges she has faced, Eunice Adedapo mentioned engaging in sports while schooling as key among them.
“.. At some point in time, I got tired [combining taekwondo with schooling]”.
” Waking up as early as 6 am to go to training at the stadium. You have to go and come back around 10 am, attend lectures, rest a little and come back to train again; most especially when there’s a [upcoming] tournament.
According to her, the passion for taekwondo kept her going despite the numerous challenges she had to endure engaging in the sport.
“The passion for the sport pushes me. The aim of raising the flag of the country actually push me to go on and finally graduate without having trouble with the sport”, She told Eze1 TV.
