Athletes scramble for space in tomorrow’s Southeast Sports Foundation meet


The long awaited Southeast Sports Foundation athletics meet will hold tomorrow at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu. The event, earlier scheduled for Friday, March 19, was brought back to tomorrow due to scheduling hiccups.

The organisers are said to be having hectic time controlling the large number of athletes who have registered for the event.

The organisers have promised to provide hotel accommodations, transportation, and feeding for 95 participants, including 50 athletes and some coaches within the Southeast zone.

Meanwhile, Nigerian-American hiphop and reggae artist based in Minnesota, U.S., E’Major, has arrived in Enugu ahead of the competition. E’Major, who was in Lagos on Sunday to celebrate the 2021 Women’s Day, is expected to thrill athletes and spectators at the competition. Two other Nigerian hiphop and reggae artists, Leo Saint, and BadManQ, are expected to team up with E’Major at the event tomorrow.

Athletes are expected to arrive in the coal city today to compete the following day in 100m (men and women), 200m (men and women), 400m (men and women) and the jumps.
