AFN announces date for All-Comers meet in Akure
The Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) has announced that an All-Comers meet will be staged in Akure, Ondo State this week to serve as the first local competition for Nigerian athletes within and outside the country.
Indeed, the 2020 season wasn’t exactly a perfect year for athletes in general as several scheduled local meets were cancelled due to outbreak of coronavirus across the globe.
With the government’s approval duly gotten for the event, there are assurances that measures have been put to place by the athletics board to prevent the spread of the infectious disease.
This Saturday, January 30, home-based athletes across the country will gather at the Federal University of Technology for the annual competition.
Notably, the last local competition staged in the country was the Okowa Post-Covid competition at Asaba, Delta back in November 2020.
