Organisers of the Top Sprinter Competition, Making of Champions (MoC) have been inundated with calls all year from athletes to stage another event, following the successful hosting of ‘Reality TV-style’ Auditions in Lagos, Ibadan, Enugu and Benin last year, while the Top Sprinter Finals also held in Lagos this time last year.
The 2016 edition of the event promises to be more exciting, bigger and better, with prize monies and gifts worth over ₦1 million to be won at the 3-day Meet! Athletes competed in Senior & Junior (U-20) categories in 2015, but this year a Youth (U-17) category is being added for the very first time, in a bid to find the best Secondary School Athletes in Lagos and across Nigeria – the best Juniors and Youth athletes discovered at this edition will be recruited into the 2016 class of the MoC Track Club!
Athletes from all over Nigeria are encouraged to attend, though unlike last year, their travel and accommodation to Lagos would be at their own expense.
