Making of Champions is calling ALL aspiring athletes between the ages of 16 and 25, male and female, anyone with the dream to represent Nigeria at either of the next two Olympics, to register for the game-changing Top Sprinter Genesis without delay! Even if you are not currently participating in Athletics – do you think you have the talent? So you think you are fast? Come and show us and we could Make you a CHAMPION!

Top Sprinter is a Reality TV show designed to unearth Nigeria’s raw talent in Sprinting and train them up IN Nigeria to become world class athletes. Ultimately, the goal is to birth a group of home-grown superstars that can win medals for Nigeria at the biggest stage of all – the Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games! For 2015/16, the Top 12 Athletes discovered in the pilot, Top Sprinter Genesis, will join MoC’s upcoming Track Club, and will be sponsored by MoC to train FULL-TIME for at least ONE YEAR, and longer if they prove their mettle as future world beaters!

Particularly for those who have never taken part in Athletics seriously, or have been out of the sport for a few years, there will be closed pre-screening “auditions” for Top Sprinter Genesis throughout February in Lagos, but only for registered participants! To register for Top Sprinter Genesis, please email [email protected] with the following details, and we will then extend invitations for the closed “auditions”:

(1) Full Name
(2) Date of Birth
(3) Gender (M or F)
(4) Phone Number
(5) Location (City, State)
(6) Events of Interest (e.g. 100m, 200m, 400m, etc)

Watch out in February for more details of the Reality TV Pilot, Top Sprinter Genesis, including the dates for the Trials in March, a 3-week Bootcamp and the FINALS, which will decide the Top 12 Athletes to join MoC’s Track Club for an initial ONE YEAR, and maybe more!

One of Nigeria’s fastest men ever, Deji Aliu, is teaming up with Making of Champions in our quest to find Nigeria’s next generation of future Olympians who will take the world by storm in the coming years. The identities of our other celebrity coaches, who will join Deji Aliu on our ‘panel of judges’ for Top Sprinter Genesis, will soon be revealed too – watch this space!

Deji Aliu is an Olympic Bronze Medallist in the 4x100m and ran a PB of 9.95s in the 100m in 2003 - only one Nigerian has run faster since (Olusoji Fasuba set the African Record of 9.85s in 2006)
