Judo champs set for August date

09 July 2014, 11:26

Lagos - The Nigeria Judo Federation (NJF) says it expects to hold the maiden Judo President National Open Senior and Junior Championships from August 6 - 8 in Benin, Edo State.

NJF Secretary-General, Amaechi Akawo, said the championships will serve as a gauge of the country's talent ahead of the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

Judokas will be selected for the Nigeria Olympic Committee scholarship programme with an eye towards Rio based on their performance at the championships.

“It is also aimed at selecting the Nigeria junior and senior teams for the forthcoming world championships,” added Akawo.

The championships will be open to all states, though only athletes with a valid licence from the NJF and who have registered for the event would be considered.

Entries for the events will close on July 30, and winners will be rewarded with trophies and cash prizes.
