“Sport is anything that stimulates your interest to explore your environment with the resultant benefit to your health.”
Former Green Eagles winger, Adegoke Adelabu , says the spread of coronavirus, which has led to postponement and cancellation of sporting events across the world has in a way killed the ‘main source of joy’ around the globe.
Adelabu, who played for the IICC Shooting Stars of Ibadan in his active days, described the postponement of many sporting events, including the Tokyo 2020 Olympics Games, as sad but unavoidable.“It is also important for the sporting industry to see the possibility of redesigning our stadia in such a way that competitions can go on in case of future epidemic,” Adelabu stated. “We also need to see the physiological implications of athletes playing and running with face masks. We need our sport industries to come up with sport suits for footballers and other games, which will not add any significant weight to their bodies. It is also important that other nations with different geographical or time zones should be kept on standby to host any major competition in case of any eventuality.”
“We need to investigate the rate of recovery of every sport man or woman tested positive for COVID-19 virus and compared it with the general population. We need to know everything possible about this virus so that it can be adequately checked in the future.”
