“This is a very important event because it involves players from all over the country. The trials will be used to select and prepare players that will represent the country at the Olympiads to be held in Baku, Azerbaijan.
“I am very happy to note that everything is already in place… all that is left is for us to hold the trials. I am confident that the players are capable of attaining great results because they have done well in previous tournaments,” Nshikokola said.
