Karate trials end in Asaba

09 July 2014, 14:14

Asaba - The trials for the upcoming 15th African Senior Karate Championships have been concluded by the Karate Federation of Nigeria.

The event, scheduled to take place in Dakar in August, will feature 29 athletes from Nigeria.

“There are 60 karatekas in camp and we will select 29 out of them for the championship in August,” revealed Emmanuel Metu, the vice president of the federation.

“The 60 we have selected have formed the national team and we will be selecting from them from time to time whenever we have competitions to take part in. There is no automatic ticket to anybody, either home-based or foreign-based but the experience he brought to the camp is appreciated.”

The upcoming National Sports Festival will be another event where athletes can showcase their talents.

“The NSF will avail us the opportunity to have more karatekas in the standby team ahead of future competitions and events,” added Metu.
