Speaking to SuperSport COO and Executive Director of Airtel - Nigeria, Mr. Deepak Srivastava informed us that the program was the only one at the real grassroots level in Nigeria with emphasis on female development - making it not just unique but very important as well.
"Nigeria recorded enviable heights in 1985,1993 and 2007 and we aim to recapture those moments" he pointed out.
Last year five exceptional stars were discovered and sent to a clinic as the South African Institute for sports in Cape Town.
