Five school sports championships have been set aside to take place in Lagos State before the end this year.

The events are majorly aimed to discover and groom talents among youths at the grassroots and it would involve swimming, table tennis, cricket, scrabble and gymnastics.

Special Adviser to Lagos State Governor on Sports, Mr Deji Tinubu, who made this known during a chat with journalists at his office, explained that the championships will increase activities in Lagos Sporting Arena in line with Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s passion to identify young athletes and give them a chance to exhibit their God-given talents.

He said any young talent discovered during the various championships will be groomed and provided training facilities to make them become stars of tomorrow.

“We will be having Championships in Swimming, Table Tennis, Cricket, Scrabble and Gymnastics, an initiative designed to open up the Sporting Facilities in Lagos to the public,” he stated.

“We want to bring sports development to the schools as it is within this school environment that genuine and proper grassroots sports development can take its roots,” Mr Tinubu informed newsmen.
