While other state athletes were dancing their way through the tracks of the main bowl of the national stadium on Sunday at the closing ceremony of the National Sports Festival, it was a different ball game for Bayelsa athletes.

They claim to have been abandoned all through the 10-day event and are now stranded in Abuja.
