We have sent two athletes sportsmen one male one female and one Judo sportsman. Our participants athletes are skilled and qualified and each of them have already attended foreign competitions over ten times with good achievements.

Then their documents are studied by NOC and the best one are elected for world Olympic games. Although we had no preparation and the NUG has not cooperated us in this direction neither material nor moral. 
The NOC asked some friendly countries to support our athletes accommodation. 
The government had allocated Afs 50m to NOC but we received nothing.
