Tobi Amusan: My father burned my sports clothes, he wanted me to read books
Tobi Amusan has become a world champion and a hero who has no peer in the 100-meter race.
Recently, he has a reputation that he has been successful in racing, and has won the world prize in the sport.
Tobi Amusan is a Nigerian, he comes from the Yoruba race, and he raised the glory of this country.
While talking to the BBC sports department, Tobi Amusan explained the times he spent in Nigeria and his relationship with his family.
My parents wanted me to be popular as a woman:
Tobi, who is only twenty-five years old, explained that many challenges arose for him because of the sport he chose to play.
Tobi told the BBC that his parents did not accept him at all, and took the child’s behavior seriously.
They only want their children to have a book education, and as a woman, they think that he is moving on his feet and that he does not have a good goal.
My mother sees things that I do not see, she often lies to my father when I go running:
While explaining the kind of support he received from his mother, Tobi Amusan is his mother in his imagination, and he has seen things that he did not see about his future.
“My mother thinks that they should give me the space to do what I want, and she always reminds me not to let her down in the trust she has in me.
My mom would tell my dad that I went to the choir meeting at our school when I left the house, or she didn’t tell him that I went to the student debate program called Debate.
All this time, I have gone to other states’ competitions. How it all started.
One day, my father was surprised and frowned at me when the secret was revealed that I was going to play on the lawn. He burned all my sports clothes.
He came and told my mom that this was not the last time he would ignore me at the sports station.”
Although his father did not have confidence or faith in the sport he chose to live, Tobi Amusan still has a lot of faith and confidence in himself, which made him rise in the sport.
