CAN THE LIGHT SHINE ''GREENE'' ON TEAM NIGERIA?

Four Time Olympic Champion, Maurice Greene has been appointed by the Athletics Federation of Nigeria to coordinate the Team Nigeria Track and Field Contingents. AFN Secretary General, Olumide Bamiduro, on Thursday revealed in a statement, Greene’s contract is expected to begin at the Mt. Sac Relay in California later this month through to the Africa Senior Athletics Championships in Marrakesh, Morocco in August.

This sounds good on paper but I do hope that bringing a Greene to the Nigerian Spotlight can actually create that winning magic...The 39-year-old former 100m world record holder with a time of 9.79 seconds will also be in charge of Nigerian athletes at the IAAF World Relays in the Bahamas and the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.Mr. Greene accepted the offer and says Its a way of giving back to Africa

As we know that Nigeria is no stranger to being acquainted with International Professionals when it comes to redeeming certain images in our sporting business...As Timi Dakolo sang, ''This little light of mine...Let is shine''
