Chief of Naval Staff Swimming Competition gets date

By Jacob Ajom
All is set for the 2010 Chief of Naval Staff swimming competition billed for April 15, 16 and 17, 2010 at the Muritala Mohammed Square, Kaduna.

Chairman of the technical committee of the Nigeria Swimming Federation, Olugbenga Lawal, told Sports Vanguard that the Chief of Naval Staff had approved the sponsorship funds which will see to the return of the competition that held last in Benin, in 2002.

Speaking further on the tournament, Olugbenga who is a retired captain of the Nigerian Navy said the CNS swimming competition was for elite swimmers.

“Those who have gone international, who can no longer compete in the national sports festival are the elite swimmers invited for the CNS competition,” Lawal said, adding that “whoever returns a better time could displace those already ranked.”
