Ogwel also went as far assuring the individuals continuing with preparations that government is willing and ready to render it’s support so as to bring home success.

“I would want to first congratulate all the athletes and federations who have already qualified a number of athletes for the forthcoming Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, England next month.”

“It has been a long journey also coupled with a period which has remained very remarkable but also created new opportunities and realities arising out of COVID-19,” he added.

In spite of the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Ogwel hailed the gallant sportsmen and women for the endless efforts to celebrate the achievements attained.

“As a country, we want to celebrate the victories and successes of our gallant athletes who made it despite those challenges of COVID-19 which has made life a little bit unique and difficult.”

“Having qualified therefore means you deserve to be on the next level and my take on behalf of NCS is to give assurance of the highest esteem that government is committed to ensuring that you are supported in your preparation and as well as to be able to be presented to the games.”
