Up to 10 countries will be represented at the inaugural edition of the AFN/MoC Invitational which takes centerstage on Saturday, May 22nd, with over 300 Athletes from across Nigeria and Africa set to storm the Yaba College of Technology to compete at the one-day event.

Although the majority of Athletes will be storming Lagos from across  Nigeria, over 20 Athletes from other African countries including Kenya, Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire, Benin Republic, Togo, Sierra Leone, Gabon, Senegal and Uganda have also registered for the meet taking place in Lagos this weekend, as they continue to pursue qualification for the Tokyo Olympics.

Over 350 Athletes registered for the AFN/MoC Invitational, with the organisers inviting the final tally of 305 Athletes based on the Entry Standards released for each event. 12 Track and 4 Field events are to be featured, and they are the Men’s & Women’s 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 100/110m Hurdles and 400m Hurdles on the Track, while the Field events are Women’s Long Jump, Men’s Triple Jump, Men’s High Jump and Women’s Shot put.

Here is the final list of 305 Athletes who have been invited to take part in the Event. Athletes for the Women’s Shot Put may still enter via the registration link by Thursday 20th May, as the event is a late replacement in the programme for the Women’s Discus Throw which has been cancelled.
