Ocheke revealed that she might retire from gymnastics if there is no encouragement in the sport.

The African Games bronze medallist said, “It is my intention to win either three or four medals at this year’s National Sports Festival in Delta State. I will be participating in the Artistic, Power tumbling and DMT Trampoline).

“Some athletes I personally train are also competing at the festival. I will be excited if they can defeat me in the various categories because that is why I put much more effort while training them.”

“I am considering retiring after this year’s National Sports Festival but if I get the necessary encouragement and support, I might change my mind,” she added.

Ocheke commended her husband (Michael Ocheke) for always supporting her in the quest for glory.

She said, “I really want to thank my husband for his constant support in ensuring I excel in this sport. Without him, I do not think I would have achieved some of these successes. I will also want to thank those that had my back while I competed for the Nation on the International stage”
