Ngozi Okoro, who represented Team Anambra in the 20th National Sports Festival, wins Silver medal. Her victory was with a very close shot in the performance for ‘Individual Kata Female’.
Indeed, this sports’ festival which is rightly dubbed Nigeria’s Olympics, showcases Nigeria’s best talents in over 30 different sporting events. This year’s event is being hosted in Edo State at the Ogbemudia Stadium.
The National Sports Festival (NSF) as we all know is the biggest Sports fiesta in the country, where both professionals and home base athletes converge to display their skills and prowess. The 20th NSF was supposed to have taken place one year ago, but was stalled due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.
The NSF which commenced in 1973 after being founded by General Yakubu Gowon, Late Major General Henry Adefope, Late Brigadier General Samuel Ogbemudia and others; still remains one of the veritable tools for uniting the country, as well as bringing the young men and women to interact and make friends, it is also an avenue to discover talents for various sports that will represent the country in the global arena.
Team Anambra congratulates Ngozi Okoro on her Win.
