AFN Concentrating On Olympic Games Preparations- Bada

The Technical/Performance Director of the Athletic Federation of Nigeria (AFN), Sunday Bada has said the major concern of the federation is to organize series of training programmes that will enhance the athlete’s medal winning prospect and make Nigeria proud at the 2012 Olympic Games in England.
The former sprinter said the Federation knows its area of strength in the All African Games billed for Mozambique and would not relent in their efforts to top the medal table in the athletics event, stressing that the best athletes at the Games would represent Nigeria at the World Athletics Championship.
Bada said the AFN has concluded plans to invite its best athletes to participate in the World Athletics Championship which according to him would serve as an avenue to put Nigerian athletes to test ahead of the Olympic Games.
He said the AFN was working seriously on its area of strength especially in the Relay event so as to sustain its records in the Olympic Games and also to put their wards in competition mood to win laurels at international tournaments.
