Together with our global partners, we are working towards the Vandyke Sports Academy project and the development of world-class training facilities for athletes in athletics in Nigeria. The Uniport Sports Institute will bring a new level of excellence in sports education, training and development. We are very excited to be working with this already world-class institute and want to extend it to the next generation of athletes, coaches, athletes and coaches.
Olympique Marseille has made the project official and further presentations by Vandyke Sports will take place until the Uniport Sports Institute opens in the next few months. Port Harcourt has been a pioneer in the development of sports education, training and development in Nigeria, as demonstrated by the construction of a new stadium and training facilities for track and field athletes at the University of Nigeria and the National Olympic Training Centre in Port Harcourt. It is a key player in the realisation of its vision for the future of athletics in Africa's second largest city.
Anugu shared Rapp's views, with Rapp saying: 'Nigerian sport needs to face this new reality to move forward, the digitalisation of sport is not only crucial but inevitable. Nigeria is the basis of our partnership with UNIPORT in West Africa and it is very important for us to be able to share our way of understanding football and the value of football with our children and staff.
This initiative will restore Port Harcourt to its garden city status, allowing indigenous visitors and investors to live, work, play and work in a welcoming environment and enjoy the era - the long hospitality of the river dwellers. We are delighted to welcome Olympique Marseille as our football programme partner and are opening our doors so that they can open their doors for the first time to the city and its people.
International technical partner Vandyke Sports witnessed the signing ceremony which took place on Saturday 2 October 2016 at Port Harcourt Sports Centre.

The world number one long jumper was out of the country during the coronavirus pandemic that disrupted living and travel conditions around the world. Brume spent the first month of his return in Akure, southwest Nigeria, where he was barred from access to training facilities.
Crime has increased, including kidnappings for ransom, extortion, robbery and other forms of violent crime. The monitoring is in line with a recent report by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). According to the report, ransom payments to Western hostages in Akure and surrounding states have increased in recent years, particularly in recent months.
With the suspension in Nigeria eased at the end of June and restrictions on cross-border traffic lifted, competition now seems to be in sight for Nigeria's athletes. Ofili, a student at the University of Port Harcourt, said he makes do with workouts at home and running on the street to stay fit. We had a lock, so we had to improvise and use household equipment for weight training, running on the street, on a treadmill, in a gym and even in our own backyard. Although Nigerians are familiar with the so-called power shows, international competition has not been formalized, giving them no more than three Olympic medals.
