Even as the Athletics Federation of Nigeria is yet to announce a schedule for the 2017 season, our veterans who compete in the Masters category have come up with their calendar and this was made available to the press through her Secretary General, Uruemu Adu.

March 19th-25th: World Master Indoor Athletic Championships Deague, South Korea.

May TBD: 1st All Nigeria Masters Athletics Championships Lagos, Nigeria. 

August 23rd-27th: 10th African Masters Athletics Championships Abidjan, Cote D’ivorie.

According to Uruemu Adu, it would be great for Nigeria to be represented by a 45 man-delegates of athletes and officials to The 10th African Masters Athletics Championships which is slated for August, 2017 in Abidjan, Cote D’ivorie.

It is worthy to note that at the last Championships in Cameroun, Nigeria with 16 athletes won 30 Gold, 16 Silver and 3 Bronze medals.

Calling on corporate bodies, Adu appealed for support from corporate organizations and individuals to help sponsor the retired but never tired veterans to conquer the African region and also sponsor the 1st All Nigeria Athletics Masters Championships.
