2019 Athletics Season: MoC Unveils New Kits, Sets High Target
Ahead of the busy athletics season for 2019, Making of Champions has unveiled new kit for its athletes, which they will don while representing the Track Club across different competitions this year.
The club unveiled branded Tracksuits, Tshirts, running tights and speed suits, all customized for athletes who are running for MoC Track Club on Tuesday.
Speaking on the new kit, MoC CEO, Bambo Akani said: “We decided to freshen up our kit. It’s really important for Track and Field athletes to get kit that can match their aspirations. What we have tried to do is to make sure their kit is fresh, make sure they are proud to go out and represent MoC Track Club and encourage them to reach for the stars, so that they can represent Nigeria eventually.”
The MOC boss further reeled out some of the club’s programmes for the 2019 season, hoping to build on the impressive achievements recorded in the past season.
“2018 was really a breakout season for Making of Champions Track Club. In the last three years, MoC Track Club athletes have won over 10 international medals for Nigeria and also over 25 National medals across all levels: Senior, Junior, and Youth levels, and at the West Africa University Games (WAUG)”, he added.
MoC athletes will be launching their new kit this season at the National U20 Championships slated for March in Ilaro, Ogun State.
Meanwhile the officials MoC have announced that two more athletes in their fold have received full scholarships ahead of the 2019 season.
Favour Ekpekpe and Emmanuel Ojeli are the latest MoC athletes to secure sponsorships, with Oil and Gas company, Shell (SNEPCO) agreeing to sponsor them this year.
“Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company (SNepco) has been partnering with us for the last two years. Favour (Ekpekpe) and Emmanuel (Ojeli) are the next two athletes who are recipients of their sponsorship for this season. Akani said.
He also said that he was optimistic that 2019 would equally be a good year for the club nationally and internationally.
“In 2018, most of our athletes did well nationally and internationally. We look forward to an excellent 2019.
“We have the World University Games in Italy, World Championships and we are hopeful that our athletes will participate,” he said.
