The first Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) Golden League of 2011, initially scheduled for Kaduna, has been moved to the University of Port-Harcourt Sports Complex, Port Harcourt. Rivers State.
A released signed by Maria Wophil, the Secretary General of the AFN, confirmed that the dates however remain unchanged.
“The Golden League will begin on Friday May 6 and end on May 7. The violence that rocked the city of Kaduna that we had earlier scheduled to host the first leg forced us to move it to Port Harcourt. We don’t want to risk the lives of our athletes in an environment were people are rioting over elections,” said Mrs Worphill.
