NCS flags off Athletes to London, gives each Usm pocket money

National Council of Sports has offered to accommodate the Uganda Athletics team and also give them pocket money while at the World Championships in London.

NCS general secretary Nicholas Muramagi announced the offer while flagging off the national team of 20 men and women at the MTN Arena, Lugogo today.

The 12-day championship starts on Thursday and runs until August 14.

Muramagi urged the athletes to consider themselves lucky to be on the national team and work hard to win medals for the country as the reward.

To see that you are among the 20 athletes to represent Uganda makes you a legend. We support you to excel so that we can celebrate with you. I encourage you to work harder. We want to benefit from this hugely endowed country, Muramagi said.

Before departure in that afternoon, NCS offered each athlete of the team Usm pocket money and Us.5m for the officials and hosted the squad for a breakfast at Javas Restaurant on Monday.

The athletes for the world championships included marathoners, steeplechase, 10000metre runners and middle distance runners.
