The Japanese government has accepted Nigeria’s request for the kitting of Nigerian sportsmen and women that will participate in the 2016 Rio Olympics.

The President, Nigeria Olympic Committee (NOC), Habu Gumel, said this at the closing ceremony of the Volleyball Coaches’ Refresher Course held at the National Stadium, Abuja.

The Course was organised by the Nigeria Volleyball Federation (NVBF) in conjunction with the Japanese Olympic Committee.

According to Gumel, the Japanese government has in the past supported Nigeria with kits during previous appearances at Olympic Games.

Gumel, who is also the President of the volleyball federation, urged the participants at the refresher course to impart the knowledge they have acquired in their players.
