Hello, I know Its been a while i have written here. So i just thought i should give an update.
The last couple of months has been really rough for me; Knee injury, no coach, no place to train, so i had to pick up an internship job i got offered at one of the companies in Missouri as a software developer, i was finally able to catch up on some bills.
Thank God, But i almost gave up my high jump goals this year but all of a sudden,a lot of new doors started opening up and i came across a track facilitiy I can work out at and my sports psychologist has really helped me to stay motivated.
A lot of people has lost faith in me and really told me to quit but i refuse to take that advice eventhough i wasnt jumping well and everything looks bad, but i still had "HOPE", and there are a very few friends of mine that really motivated me to keep going. The Nigerian high jumper being one of them (Amata Doreen), she is always telling me to keep praying and keep working hard that things would come back to normal soon.
My sports psychologist really had me really think about my God Given talent and how it is still in me that i should seek out for help with the things i need.But to make things short i started seeking help and my prayers wer answered and i was blessed all of a sudden, My Company gave me some money and gave me time off to train for two weeks before the Nigerian Trials, and i came across Coach Bob Cervenka who was also a blessing, so i decided to move to Chicago 2 weeks ago and my friend Chidi let me stay with him while i was there . Coach Bob helped me technically and helped me modify my approach,
I recently just changed my approach two weeks ago and i feel very very very good with it and my knee injury feels so much better and i have never been as confident as i am right now. its amazing how a few changes can help you jump so much higher, it must have been in God's plan for me to keep going. So i am here right now. I paid my way to fly into Nigeria and im ready to jump.
My Main Goal is to make the Nigerian Olympic Team by jumping at least 2.27m, this would break the National record.then i can go or the jackpot all in this one week. and i feel very good that i can attain all of it By God's Grace, So please keep me in your prayers. So i am currently in Nigeria now, just waiting anxiously till i jump.
I would definitely let you guys know how i end up.
I really really Thank all of the people who believed and invested their money and time in me, The people who had faith in me and believed in me when i didnt even believe in myself anymore. There is so much to write about my season and obstacles.
But i am just happy that i am in a better position now to obtain my Goal. I would not be thinking about jumping this high two weeks ago, so God is Good.
So I guess i would be a prime example of a person not giving up when everything seems to be going wrong.
But Talk to you guys soon. I hope i can come back here to write my next post with Good and Exciting News.Please check out my website(www.bayoadio.com) and leave me a note on my Guestbook for good luck, motivation and encouragement..
