The Nigeria Olympic Committee (NOC) has officially started its countdown to the 2020 Summer Olympics which kicks off from Friday 23rd July to 8th August, 2021.
News of this development was disclosed in a statement issued by the NOC Media Officer Mr. Phemmy Adetula and made available on the RENDEZVOUS AIPS AFRICA platform which is the official platform for African AIPS members.
The statement stated in part that “we will be showcasing our gladiators to their teaming fans not only in Nigeria but across the world for the next 30 days”.
“Though the 32nd edition of the games will not come with its usual funfair because of the Covid-19 pandemic ravaging the world at this period but that won’t deter our athletes a podium finish”.
“As at today, 51 athletes from 10 sports will be participating at the Tokyo games from Friday 23rd July to 8th, August, 2021 as our countdown will commence from June 22nd, 2021”. So, let the countdown begin.
