This is a valuable quote from my good friend and associate, Grandmaster George Ashiru, made on August 15, 2012, after the 2012 Olympics:

Engineers are not produced after a crash course for the creative. Olympic champions can’t be produced after 2 months of “intensive” preparations. It takes 6-8 years to take a first class talent to Olympic heights. Those who lack long term vision and stamina should never be allowed to manage resources and talents. RIO starts now, not 2015.

Grandmaster George is wise beyond time in many aspects of life, including Taekwondo, government, history, and human nature. He is one of the driving forces between the martial artists on Team Nigeria.

Good luck to our Nigerian athletic friends in Rio in 2016!
