Nigeria’s contingent to this year’s IAAF World Youth Championship scheduled for Ukraine are confident of showcasing an impressive performance, enough to justify their emergence as continental champions, as the tournament begins today.

The delegation, led by the Vice President of the Athletic Federation of Nigeria (AFN), Tunde Abdulkareem, arrived Ukraine on Tuesday, linking up with other athletes and officials who were already on ground in Donetsk.

Speaking on arrival, two coaches attached to the team, Abraham Odia and Raymond Agboro, reposed their best confidence on the strength the team has possessed, which they said is sufficient for the team to live up to their billing.

Team Nigeria being winners of the last African Youth Championship (AYC) in Warri, Delta State, Odia opined that the athletes and the officials are well aware of the expectations placed on them and should take a leaf from their performance at the continental championship to the world stage.
