According to NPC Secretary General Celestin Nizeyimana, the committee will field participants in two disciplines-athletics and power lifting.

“For now, we are comfortable competing in these two disciplines,” he said.

Rwanda was admitted into the Commonwealth federation late last year after the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) executive board approved her application.

The National Olympic Committee will also take part in the multinational, multi-sport event, which is held every four years.
