Nigeria became the 41st country in the GLRF Worldwide community when a member registered from the city of Abuja. With the addition of Nigeria, the GLRF Africa - Middle East region has expanded to 6 countries: Israel, Kenya, Nigeria, Qatar, South Africa, and the United Arab Emirates. For those who wonder about rowing in Africa, there is a strong competitive rowing presence. Take a look at this article in GLRF Categories: African Rowing Championships extend medal spread.


When thinking about Africa, most people think of Egypt or Kenya or South Africa. In fact, Nigeria is known as the "Giant of Africa," with a population of 174 million, making it the most populous country on the African continent. Nigeria's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is the largest in Africa, exceeding US $500 billion, overtaking South Africa, and ranking as the world's 21st largest economy.


A warm welcome to our first Nigerian member, and we hope he will spread the word and encourage other rowers to join from around the African region!
