Regina, a silver medalist at the African Championships in 2012, said the federal government had informed athletes to pay their ways to Brazil.

The 25-year-old American-Nigerian born wrote in the fund solicitation message she captioned: Help get me to the Olympics, ” To all my family friends and fans thanks for being here for me through the good times and bad times. This year it’s been hard financially for me but it wouldn’t have been possible without your support. I just been told that we will have to pay our own way to the Olympics this year . Sadly this is such short notice for me to come up with the money. They also promised a refund but I’m still waiting for many refunds promised in the past. I been through a lot of obstacles this year and through it all I made my SECOND Olympic team. I don’t want to stop now after I earned a spot to represent my country in the Olympics. Any donation will help my situation. This will not go unnoticed and I’m truly grateful for my supporters.”
