Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, says any Nigerian athlete who do not show up for the national trials will not represent the country at the track and field events of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
Dare said this while addressing athletes at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium, Abuja, in preparation for their trip to the United States for meets.
The minister who assured the athletes of the government’s support, said both home-based and foreign-based athletes must present themselves for the national trials in June before the Olympics.
The Nigerian delegation hopes to secure qualification for the relay events of the Olympics in the US, after missing out on the World Relays in Silesia, Poland
