The president-elect of the Nigeria Swimming Federation, Chief (Mrs) Chinonye Daphey has set the Olympic standard as a target for the swimmers in Nigeria.


She declared soon after the inauguration of the National Sports Federations Boards at the VIP lounge of MKO Abiola National Stadium, Abuja today that the aquatic sport would be taken to the riverine areas in the bid to discover talents.

According to her, there’s water everywhere in Nigeria, and we are going to storm the riverine areas, and plans have been made to make some of the riverine areas suitable for the purpose of developing swimming. We have a lot of swimmers in those riverine areas, but most of them lack the technical skills for competition.

“And this is where our technical experts we are going to deploy to those areas will work on to bring out the best from the lot.

“The Arugungu has a lot of swimming activities, and we are going to deploy our technical experts there to teach them the techniques and technicalities of competitive swimming”, said Chief (Mrs) Chinonye Daphey in her first media chat after the inauguration.
