Ali said this on Saturday in an interview in Lagos.
No fewer than 73 athletes have been in camp, ahead of the 2014 Glasgow Games scheduled to hold from July 23 to Aug. 3
The former quarter miller said in an interview that the second phase of camping had just ended, adding that there would be a competition at Ijebu Ode to further prepare the athletes.
“We just finished the second phase of our training, but by next Saturday, we will start our competition in Ijebu Ode.
“From there, we will gear up for the Golden League competition which will give us a peep into what to expect from the athletes.
“I can’t asses our athletes now until we test their abilities.
“It will be difficult as we have a long way to go. We will ensure that they get all the support they need,” Ali said. (NAN)
