Lagos To Unveil Olympic-Size Swimming Pool

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos state has announced that the reconstructed Olympic-size swimming pool, warm-up pool and a 250-seater spectator’s stand at the Rowe Park Sports Centre, Yaba will be open soon for public use.

Speaking at the distribution of sports equipment to schools by the Lagos State Sports Trust Fund recently, the Governor praised LSSTF’s commitment to youth development through sports.

The Governor, who was represented by the state’s Commissioner for Youth and Social Development, Bolaji Ogunlende, lauded the management of LSSTF for their understanding of the place of sports in the overall development of the youths.

“Besides the equipment being distributed, the LSSTF has finally completed the reconstruction of an Olympic-size swimming pool, warm-up pool, and a 250-seater spectator’s stand at Rowe Park Sports Centre, Yaba. This project will soon be commissioned, and it is expected that the number of medals in swimming for the state will triple in future swimming competitions.”

The Governor added, “LSSTF has equally rehabilitated five outdoor sports courts and the construction of additional showers and toilets for our athletes at Rowe Park, Yaba. This facility is currently in use. All these are geared towards diverting the attention of the youths from negative vices and grooming as well as developing future champions for our dear state.”

The Executive Secretary, LSSTF Olaposi Agunbiade, added that the projects and donations would not have been possible without the huge support from the Governor as well as donors.
