Over 500 Athletes Arrives Warri -As AFN Test Run EDM Machine

 The second leg in the series of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) All Nigeria Relays Competition will Saturday, March 23, see over 500 athletes taking part at Warri City Stadium.
Coordinator of the All Nigeria Relays, national long jump record holder, Yusuf Ali said the Warri edition will be all field events.
He said this is so, because the federation will be using the events to test run its latest acquired equipment, the Estimated Distance Measurement (EDM) which will also be used during the Africa Youth Athletics Championship in same venue in Warri next week.
“I can confirm that over 500 athletes will be taking part in the Warri leg of the All Nigeria Relays but we will be concentrating on the field events this weekend.
“The relays will return in our next meeting.
Elaborating on the EDM, Ali said, “We just bought a Timetronics device for the Warri event. It is the first time that we will be using EDM (Estimated Distance Measurement) device in Nigeria and this means that officiating officials will no longer use tapes to measure distances in events like Long Jump, Javelin etc.
The Warri event is the second leg in the series of the All Nigeria Relays, an initiative of the president of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria in other to see Nigeria relay teams shaping up for challenges ahead.
The Warri leg will see athletes taking part in the long, high and triple jumps, shot put, discuss throw, pole vault and other field events and it is going to be a morning and afternoon session with a three hour break from 12pm to 3pm.

I've been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me.
Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
