The International Olympic Committee president, Dr Thomas Bach, has commended the Nigeria Olympic Committee Athletes Commission for their initiative in creating awareness on the COVID-19 pandemic, using the voice of Nigerian athletes.
Bach said Nigeria was the first country to do that, and encouraged other NOCs to emulate Nigeria.
The video of the Nigerian athletes’ message was used on social media platforms by Athlete365 and the Olympic Channel.
Dr. Thomas Bach made this disclosure at a conference meeting that included 200 athletes’ representatives, IOC executive members, as well as IOC Athlete Commission members and the Olympic Channels. (Text courtesy Punch)
