    Channels TV Launches Track And Field Classics

    Channels Television has announced the launch of a new grassroots development programme tagged the “Channels Track and Field Classics”.
    The athletics competition is for boys and girls in Secondary schools, under the age of 17.
    Participants must be bona fide students of their schools and will be required to provide genuine proof of identification.

    The two-day event will take place on November 11 and 12, 2018 at the Teslim Balogun Stadium and will commence on both days at 9:00 am.
    For the maiden edition, the tournament will be strictly invitational for schools in Lagos State where over 1000 students from the six educational districts in the state will compete.

    Participants will compete in the following events:
    100 metres
    200 metres
    400 metres
    4 X 100 metres relay
    4 X 400 metres relay
    400 metres hurdles
    800 metres
    Long Jump

    The major objective of the competition is to re-ignite the interest of athletics in schools, discover and nurture talents for the country.
    In conjunction with the Lagos State Sports Commission, the event will monitor the talents after the tournament and also encourage them to excel in their education.

    Channels Television’s grassroots development campaign started in 2009 with the Kids Cup – a football competition for U-13 boys in primary schools which is now an international tournament, with schools from Ghana and Benin Republic competing.
    The track and field classics will also feature an exhibition event involving visually impaired and amputee athletes.
