Nuga Medallist Complain

Some of the medallists in the 2014 Nigerian University Games at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, on Friday complained over  the medals presented to them, claiming they  were of “low quality”.
The organisers of the competition gave medals to athletes who came first, second and third  in their events.
Our correspondent   observed that  the  logo  of the Games  was not engraved on the  medals.
One of the medallists, who spoke on condition of anonymity,  said, “This is bad. How can we prove that we got these  medals    from NUGA  when  there is  no  logo of the competition on them? I’m  highly  disappointed. Anyone could have bought these  medals from anywhere.”
Another medallist said, “This is not my first time of winning medals in NUGA. This is not how they  look like. They normally  have  the  NUGA logo.”
Meanwhile,  Obafemi Awolowo University  and University of Calabar will meet in  the final of the  football event.
