Youth group tasks PDP delegates to elect credible candidates


ABUJA – No fewer than 200 gymnasts from nine countries are expected to participate in the fourth edition of the Tony International Gymnastics (TIG) Level System Championship.
Anthony Asuquo, Coach and Manager of Tony International Gymnastics Club (TIG) said this in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Abuja.
Asuquo said that the championship billed for Dec. 6, was aimed at grooming young talents.
“We want to start looking into young children, especially those that have talents in the sport because it is good to catch them young.
“We want to start early, so that when they become 15 or 16 years, they can start competing in the Olympics.
“The only way to do it is to organise a level system where the gymnasts move from one level to the other.
“ This year, we are organising the event from level one to six and within the ages of four to 12, competing in different gymnastics apparatus.’’
The coach said that the winners of each level will go home with trophies, certificates, medals and probably gifts from sponsors.
Asuquo is the first Nigerian coach to be certified by the International Federation of Gymnastics (FIG). (NAN)
