Sports Minister, Sunday Dare will meet with heads of the various federations tomorrow to deliberate on the country’s participation at the Olympic Games billed for Tokyo in June.

Tomorrow’s meeting, according to Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF) Vice President, Babs Ogunade, will review the country’s preparations for the Games, as well as the needs of the federations as they enter the last leg of their training for the world meet.

Ogunade, who arrived in the country yesterday from Serbia, where the women national basketball team, D’Tigress, booked their ticket to the Olympics, told The Guardian that the meeting would help the NBBF programme the men’s and women teams for good performances at the Olympics.

Ogunade said: “The federations that have qualified for the Olympics will meet with the sports minister on Thursday this week. After the meeting, the federations will know the next line of action for their teams’ preparations for the 2020 Olympics.

“The NBBF is delighted that D’Tigers and D’Tigress will compete at the 2020 Olympics. The girls have travelled to their various clubs after the Olympics qualifiers.

“Our focus in the NBBF is how to ensure the male and female teams get the best preparations for the 2020 Olympics.”

Ogunade added that NBBF decided to appoint Mike Brown as the new head coach of the men’s national team (D’Tigers) to ensure the team got the best technical assistance at the 2020 Japan Olympics.

He added that the vast experience of Brown in the NBA would be needed to raise a formidable squad for the championship. (The Guardian)
