IOC finally approves ineligible Nigerian athletes receive Samsung Galaxy S21 5G

The International Olympic Committee, IOC, has finally granted the request of Team Nigeria for her 10 athletes who were declared ineligible to partake in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics to receive Samsung Galaxy S21 5G  given to all athletes who qualified and are resident at the Olympic Village.

The letter of approval was signed by Jonas Brun, Junior Project Manager, NOC Relations/ NOC Services.
“Regarding your athletes that will not participate in competitions in Tokyo in light of  the latest information received, I confirm that you can still go ahead and give phones to the athletes”, the letter reads.

The phones which were delivered to all NOCs at the Games Village was in order for them to benefit from all important information included in the Athlete365website and also to comply with requirements set forth in the Play books, in particular the download and use of the apps required by the Japanese authorities.

The Nigeria Olympic Committee like all other NOCs had received the phones on behalf of their athletes but could not extend such gestures to the ineligible athletes as they tried to abide by the rules.
The approval by the IOC to extend the Samsung phones gifts to the ineligible athletes had since been complied by the NOC.
