The journey we embarked on almost exactly a year ago, to understand why and how Nigerian Athletics has fallen by the wayside on the world stage, has reached a critical and momentous phase. The Making of Champions Film, “The History”, is now ready for private screenings, with the intention of getting it on TV across the world next year!

Making of Champions – “The History” is an 80-minute film capturing Nigeria’s full Olympic medal history in Athletics (Track & Field) and lays the foundation for how Nigeria can return to reckoning on the world stage and even dominate the sport in years to come! Here’s the Title Sequence (the first 2 minutes of the film)! 


It is with great pleasure and anticipation that we embark on the Making of Champions International Roadshow, to host private viewings of the film in Nigeria, the UK and the US! Starting next week, we will be on the road to show the film to the key stakeholders for Sports and Athletics in Nigeria, to Corporate Nigeria, and to friends, family and well-wishers around the globe!

We’ll be starting this first phase of private viewings in London on Mon Nov 11th! Please see the details of the viewings in each city we’re coming to. For the November viewings, please RSVP by Sunday Nov 10th to [email protected] (with the viewing venue and date, your name and the names of any guests you’re bringing) to be added to the guest list for your chosen viewing.
