Additional information

JOURNEY
Parents and older siblings were born in Nigeria, but moved to the United States for academic reasons and ended up staying. When his parents could afford it, the family travelled back to Nigeria, so MOZIA is a dual citizen. Wanted to improve his footwork for basketball and known for tripping over his own feet while running in a straight line. His brothers threw the shot, his American football coach was the throws coach, and his best friend threw, so they pulled him off the oval and toward throwing. "When I first picked up the shot, I thought 'wow, this is really heavy'. So, in my first year I mainly threw discus. As I got stronger, then I started to throw the shot." (throwholics.com, 27 Mar 2018)
