AFN/Solid Works Golden League : ...Abogunloko’s Absence Throws Sprint Title Open

The second leg of the 2013 AFN/Solid Works Golden League promises some exciting moments tomorrow when athletes file out for their events at the University of Benin Sports complex in Ugbowo, Benin City.
At the first leg in Sagamu a fortnight ago, most athletes who were starting their outdoor season were a little bit lethargic, resulting in poor results in most of the event. But that may not be the case on Saturday as  most of them have realized that high point scoring was important for them to win the prize money at stake.
“Most of the athletes were not too happy that they did not win the usual prizes at stake in the Golden League series. But now that they have been briefed on the need to improve their performances, we are bound to witness some really exciting moments at the Uniben Sports Complex on Saturday,” observed the Technical Director of the AFN, Navy Commodore Omatseye Nesiama.
The women sprint promises to throw up a new winner in the absence of quarter miler, Bukola Abogunloko who stepped down to boost her speed in the longer sprint but is away in the United States of America to feature in the Penn Relays slated for this weekend. She won the 200m in Sagamu.
But in her absence, the duo of Patience Okon (NSCDC) and Cross River State sprinter, Peace Uko would have to battle for the top prize. Okon (23.45) picked the silver in Sagamu while Uko settled for the bronze in 23.94secs.
In the long distance races, Nigeria’s contingent to the maiden Okpekpe 10km International Road Race who have been in camp in Abuja in the last fortnight are bound to produce some improved results in the 5,000m and 10,000m events.
The duo of Deborah Pam and Janet Dung (NSCDC) will try to outrun National Sports Festival revelation, Aminat Olowora of Lagos State in the 5,000m, just the way they did in the first leg in Sagamu.
In the men’s 10,000m, Nigeria’s hopes of challenging the East Africans in the Okpekpe road race, Emmanuel Gyang and Kefas Williams need this event as dress rehearsal. A good outing here in Benin is what will gladden the heart of National Long Distance Coach, Nuhu Stephens that his effort in the last three weeks on the athletes was not a waste of time and resources.
Some of the events listed to hold in the Benin leg include; 100m/200m, 800m, 5000m, 100m Hurdles, triple Jump, Shot Put, Discus, 4x100m Relay, 4x400m Relay and 20km Race Walking.
There will be an All Comers category in the Women 400m, Long Jump and Javelin.
Golden League events for men include; 100m/200m, 800m, 10, 000M 400M Hurdles, Long Jump, Javelin, Hammer, 4x100m Relay and 4x400m Relay.

Hi i was wondering if anyone knows a good laptop to purchase for an industrial student which runs solidworks smoothly, and also other CAD software such as Photoshop? Also it would be a big help for a recommended graphics tablet which also runs nicely with the laptop at a student price :).

Hi Jack Pot,
And thank you for your
comment. Nicely, without understanding either
of you, my recommendations will be to flirt your way for
a little bit and see if she goes alongside. We do like to flirt.

Be unfailingly polite (we have a tendency to like manners) and place some care in your look ( I am positive she
is into garments...). In the event you get her out for evening meal,
you need to most likely avoid Italian dining establishments.
Above all, and the hardest of all, be yourself. It is the only way to know if you
are suitable, no? Great luck. And I'd like it in case you kept me posted.

A sad day for TED the only way forward in science may be the continuous challenge of new
ideas, pointing out anomalies in any current theory
or paradigm. Just imagine a world without these questions and new ideas we might nonetheless feel which the
earth will be the center of the universe and/or flat. So really absolutely nothing new below the sun Galileo, Copernicus both
knew the incredibly strong defense system' the current powers that be' they ended up in prison so as to silence them.
It truly is strange even though that TED Talks has succumbed
to this effective defense system' inside a way Sheldrake is silenced at the same time. I believed this was specifically what TED Talks was those innovative, creative and challenging ideas a platform, a place for new and unusual thoughts to become voiced and heard. So that the debate may possibly go on, to aid us all on this planet locate our way forward!!

Its such as you read my thoughts! You seem to grasp a lot about this, such as
you wrote the e book in it or something. I feel that you simply could do with
some p.c. to force the message house a little bit, but
other than that, this is magnificent blog. A fantastic read.
I'll definitely be back.
