Recently ranked Nigeria Invitational Open by World Taekwondo has been shifted to another three weeks after the Nigeria Taekwondo Federation officially proposed February 2019 for the global competition.
The Federation’s Technical Director, Chika Chukwumerije explained that the postponement decision was to enable Athletes in Nigeria and other West African countries to conclude processing their World Taekwondo Global Membership System (GMS) Licence, a compulsory requirement to register for any global taekwondo event.
Chukwumerije who remains the only Nigerian to have won taekwondo medal at Olympic Games said so far 50 persons from eight countries including India, Ethiopia, Ghana, Congo, Mozambique, Mali and Nigeria had registered before the close of deadline.
The Federation few months ago secured the World Taekwondo endorsement on Nigerian Open which debuted last year as an international competition.
