AFN donates training kits to Greenspring Schools
Impressed with the giant stride made in school sports by Greenspring Schools, Lagos, the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) has provided basic training kits to the school.
This was in fulfillment of the promise made by the AFN President, Solomon Ogba, during his recent visit to the school.
The International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) Athletics Kids bag was donated to Greensprings following what the AFN described as its genuine involvement in sports.
The decision to support the school with the equipment was made in January by the AFN boss, who said then that the initiative could encourage other schools to prioritise sports.
According to Ogba, Greensprings has done a lot for school sports development in Nigeria and such a school should be supported to boost its sports initiative.
Elated by the development, IAAF certified instructor for Kids Athletics in Nigeria, Funmi Nutai lauded AFN for identifying with Greensprings, while urging other sports federations to take a cue from AFN.
Recently, a Lagos-based sports academy, Dynaspro Weekend Sports Academy benefited from the AFN’s gesture, with the coordinator of the academy, who is also a consultant on sports to Greensprings, Oluseyi Oyebode, applauding the federation for identifying with the academy.
To Oyebode, “This is a dream come true and this will further enhance our training to international standard at the academy and I believe this will help us to use international standard to train our students.”
