Gungaram Vivian, the vice president of the Confederation of African Athletics, CAA, is happy with what the Delta state government and the Local Organising Committee have put in place for the 21st African Senior Athletics Championships.

Gungaram during his inspection of the Stephen Keshi Stadium on Monday expressed satisfaction on what is on ground.

“What has been put in place here is not just good for the CAA standard, but good enough for the IAAF, you can organize a World Championships with this equipment,” he said.

“This is my second visit for inspection, and after going around the facilities, I can see there has been a lot of work done compared to the last time I visited, things have moved very fast, even some of the things not initially on the plans were cropping up like the warm-up track, which will be good for the athletes training.

“I am sure it will be ready latest by July 18 for the African tour which will be a dress rehearsal for the main championships in August.”

The championship is billed to take place in Asaba between August 1 and 5.
