Athletics Federation of Nigeriaâ€™s camping ahead of the 2010 Commonwealth Games has been stalled due to lack of funds.
The athletes and coaches invited to the camp in Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State, were sent home during the Easter break, but three weeks after the AFN is unable to restart the exercise. And this is beginning to tell on athletesâ€™ performances as noticed during the AFN golden League.
â€œThe basic truth is that we have no money to run the camp,â€ said a member of the AFN technical committee.
He added that all efforts to get funding from the National Sports Commission has not yielded any result.
â€œRight from the start, the AFN funded the camping. But now we donâ€™t have any money. We will resume camping when whenever we get funding from the NSC.â€
