My husband left me because I refused to quit athletics – Okon-George

Track star, Patience Okon-George has said her husband left her because she refused to quit athletics. Okon represented Nigeria in the women’s 400m, 4x100m and 4x400m mixed relays at the just-ended Tokyo 2020 Olympics. That makes it her second appearance at the Games. In this interview, she hinted Johnny Edward when she is no longer married and why her husband left! Johnny asked; Are you married? I used to be but not anymore, but I have two lovely princesses (girls). What happened to your husband? He walked away because he did not want me to continue with athletics, but that has always been what I wanted to do. Athletics gave me everything and I could not imagine myself doing something else. I almost thought of quitting because as at that time, I told my then-husband that I would consider his options if he set up a lucrative business for me, which he did not do eventually. He left me when my second baby was just over two years. He left us in 2010 and stopped being responsible ever since then. So, I had no choice but to focus on my game and work hard to give my girls a better life. It was rough and tough at first, but I got used to it.
