Lagos First Lady, Mrs Sanwo-Olu Competes In Lagos Women Run Virtual Race

Posted on November 22, 2020

The Lagos State First Lady, Dr. (Mrs.) Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu, on Saturday completed her 10 kilometre Virtual Run inside the Lagos Government House complex, Ikeja adhering to all COVID-19 protocols as specified by the organisers, the Lagos Women Run 2020.

Dr. Sanwo-Olu, who last year emerged as the first wife of any serving governor in the history of Nigerian sports to complete a 10 kilometre Road Race in the 2019 Lagos Women Run, running from the start point at the Tafawa Balewa Square to the finish line at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, did it again this time around virtually running the full course of 10km inside the Government House.

The First Lady was so enthusiastic to complete the 10km route measured earlier on Friday by officials of the Lagos Women Run after the First Lady indicated her interest to compete in the Fun Race.

She promised to run again next year which would be her third hopefully in an open race after the relaxation of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021.

P.M. EXPRESS reports that the virtual run was part of the innovations introduced to this year’s Lagos Women Run to take care of the runners who might not have the opportunity to physical come to the race line. It was also a good innovation to afford overcrowding and crowd control mechanism during the race in this era of ravaging COVID-19 pandemic.
