African Championships Off to a Not-So-Flying Start

A logistical nightmare is what organisers of the African Championships in Asaba are experiencing - this as some events are being shifted to accomodate late arrivals that include Team Kenya, who were delayed when they couldn't get connecting flights from Lagos to Asaba. And the evening programme was scrapped because the Stephen Keshi Stadium has no floodlights! One wonders what the stadium's "dry run" was all about...
