African WMA regionals set this weekend for Abidjan, Ivory Coast

A Nigerian news outlet notes the forthcoming 2017 African Masters [Athletics] Championships Aug. 25-27 in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire [Ivory Coast]. Thirty Nigerian athletes will compete in the WMA regional meet, “Solomon Aliyu is the team coach, Abubakar Aliyu will be the team manager and Uruemu Adu is the head of delegation,” we learn. The African Masters Athletics website is skinny, and the Ivory Coast meet site is funky. So I’m not holding out much hope for expeditious results. But the Facebook page shows a snazzy medal. Maybe WMA Prez Stan Perkins will give a report. He goes everywhere.

Both sides of gold medal with nifty band for the African Masters Championships.
