  1. THIS WAS EXPECTED THE FELLOWS WENT THERE TOURING JAPAN NOT REALLY REPRESENTING ZAMBIA. THE TROIBLE IS WE DON’T PUT IN MUCH RESOURCES WHEN IT COMES TO PREPARATIONS AND ALWAYS EXPECT MIRACLES TO BE ON OUR SIDE. THE OLYMPICS ARE VERY HIGH LEVEL EVENTS PARTICIPANTS NEED TO BE PREPARED VERY WELL AND NOT ZAMBIAN WAY OF DOING THINGS. PREPARATIONS FOR A MONTH UNDER VERY POOR CONDITIONS. WE ARE JUST A NATION THAT IS FALLING APART BECAUSE OF FAILED LEADERSHIP IN ALMOST ALL SECTORS. DO WE NEED TO BLAME OTHERS FOR OUR POOR PERFORMANCE? WE NEVER LEARN FROM OUR PAST EXPERIENCE. EXPERIENCE IS A GREAT TEACHER BUT WE IGNORE SIMPLE RULES. NO MEDAL NOT EVEN BRONZE AT LEAST. WE HAVE FALLEN APART AS A NATION.

  2. We need to set our priorities in athletics clearly. Zambians are not good at truck events. We can’t run like Kenyans, Ethiopians, Nigerians and Jamaicans. I give this examples because majority competitors are black and excel. They have the appetite to compete. What I see with Zambians in such high profile competitions is that they undermine themselves, thus; lack self confidence. Therefore, Zambians should be looking at participating in field events like: Shot-put, javelin, archery, hockey (men & women) discuss, long jump and high jump, boxing (men & women), weight lifting (Men & women) etc. I guess these are areas our athletes can express themselves given proper training and selection. The coming government should ensure to make sports competitive in schools by reviving training of…

  3. Its the same old boring story from one Olympic Games to another!!!What is more annoying is we never seem to learn I dont know what is wrong in our Nation!!!!! From Administrators to the athletes We have said it time and time again and as usual no one ever pays attention Serious administrators begin their preps RIGHT after the games but in Zambia people begin to run around 3 months before and what results do you expect?These Administrators and athletes simply go as tourists

  4. Sydney didn’t want to embarasse “white” people, inferior complex. Someone tell these Zambians that black Americans or any American are not special, they just pump themselves when they see camera.
    So Zambians pump yourselves like Cletus Chama, Daka and Fashion.
    Mwepu is probably the best African player, but the boy need build a swaggy.

  5. We should be proud of our athletes who represented our country. You have to qualify to go to these events so if we didn’t achieve any medals it’s okay, we’ll do better next time. Why are we always ashamed of failure? Failure is what makes people better so well done team Zambia especially the women football team who were extremely unlucky to progress. You have done us proud. We hope with a bit more funding and preparations, the medals will start coming.
