history

AFRO SPORT Promotion started working in the early eighties based on various experience of sport and sport development in several foreign countries (Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Senegal, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, and The Gambia).

The first competition tour with African Athletes was well back in 1975 to International Meetings in Europe and Germany. 1976 Nigerian and Ghanaian athletes started to come to train in Heidelberg / Germany.

After returning 1985 from Kenya AFRO-SPORT Promotion was established and started working with young athletes and promoted them all over Europe.

Kipkemboi Kimeli, a real potential athlete, discovered in Kenya 1983 at the age of 16 years during a training camp in Nyahururu, was one of the first. He won the first ever gold medal for Kenya at the World Cross Country Junior Championship in Lisbon 1985.

Kimeli first time came over from Kenya to Germany mid of 1985 to train and compete. From then on he started to improve, develop and became the Bronze medalist during Olympic Games 1988 in Seoul in 10 000m.



Since long time one major focus of AFRO SPORT Promotion is to help in general to improve the infrastructural development of sports at varios level, based on individual and different connections and consultations with IOC, IAAF, DOSB, DLV and in co-operation with several National Federations.
