We`re Training Gymnasts To Coach Others In Future, Coach Says

Coach and Founder of Tony International Gymnastics Club TIG, Tony Asuquo, says the club was training gymnasts, not just to improve them alone but to coach others.

Asuquo said this in an interview with Newsmen on the side-lines of the just concluded 13th TIG Level System Gymnastics competition in Abuja.

Asuquo, who is Nigeria’s first certified International Gymnastics Federation FIG coach, said over 200 gymnasts participated in the event.

He said over 200 gymnasts, including 50 schools and 80 clubs across the country, featured in the tournament on Friday and Saturday.

He added that no fewer than 15 of the gymnasts in his club would feature for various states at the upcoming National Sports Festival NSF in Asaba.
