Watch this video to see how Top Sprinter’s Celebrity Panel of Judges – Olympic Medallists Deji Aliu, Glory Alozie, Uchenna Emedolu and Francis Obikwelu – decided on Benin City for the impending final 2015 Auditions for Top Sprinter Genesis!

This final Auditions in 2015 will now take place at the Uniben Sports Complex in Benin on September 25/26th, with the Lagos FINALS, bringing together all the best athletes from the Ibadan, Enugu & Benin Auditions coming up immediately after at the Teslim Balogun Stadium from October 1st to 3rd!

Both events are ‘all-comers’ events – ALL Athletes are allowed to compete BUT YOU MUST REGISTER ONLINE HERE TO BE ON THE STARTLIST IN BENIN AND/OR LAGOS – every athlete competing in Benin or Lagos must fill this form once – please email the link to all your athlete friends who may be interested in taking part!

Don’t delay, as the first 100 applicants for the Benin Auditions will be sponsored fully down to Benin from Thursday Sept 24th to Sunday Sept 27th (travel, accommodation and feeding will be covered by Making of Champions) – spaces are already filling out FAST!

You must also register before the deadlines for each city to be part of that competition. For Benin Auditions the Registration Deadline is Monday Sept 21st, while the Lagos FINALS Registration Deadline is Sunday Sept 27th!

After a CLOSED 3-day Bootcamp in Lagos, the Judges’ teams will face off against each other and all other comers at the Lagos FINALS! Only one Team can be crowned 2015 Top Sprinter Champs – who will emerge on top? Only time will tell – watch this space!
