The young champions, who will be representing Nigeria at the International Championship in China, are Debora Slomong Nko (Gold in High Jump and Bronze in Long Jump), Celestina Stephen (Gold in Javelin), Gideon David (Silver in 400M Boys), Grace Martins (Gold in 4x100M), Ruth Martin (Gold in 4x100M), Favour Emmanuel (Gold in 4x100M) and Esther Daniel (Gold in 4x100M).
