Swimming Federation to hold championships in September


Everything was set for the 8th Chief of Naval Staff (CNS) Swimming Championships taking place in September.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria, Babatunde Fatayi-Williams, president of Nigeria Aquatics Federation (NAF), on Monday in Abuja said the championship which is scheduled for September has yet to get exact date for the competition.

He said that the championships, which was earlier billed to hold in August, was postponed to give time for better preparations.

“The event is billed for Lagos but the host will be holding Table Tennis Classics later this month, so we decided to move the CNS event.

“The competition will feature two categories, the senior or elite category and the junior which is meant for secondary school students.

“This is to help to identify and develop new talents for the sport,’’ Fatayi-Williams said.
