AÂ bus driver, Blessing Eguaveon, has emerged winner of the 2nd edition of Panenka Spot Kick Challenge at the iconic Estadio Krypton, Benin City, Edo State.
The event which recorded another memorable spectacle filled with innovative thrills, entertainment and panache, was flagged off by a customary kick-off by the Crown Prince of Benin Kingdom, HRH Crown Prince Ezelekhae Ewuare.
The Panenka Spot Kick Challenge is a sports reality entertainment show which involves a last man styled penalty challenge between 11 pre-designated contestants with the winner parting with the prize money of N100, 000.00.
The penalty kick challenge matched the pre-event hype and audience expectations as the battle to be the last man standing was one filled with suspense, drama, twists and near misses.
The challenge lasted five rounds with one of the notable misses coming from the winner of the first edition, Hassan Akar, making an early exit in the first round. In the end, Eguaveon emerged as the last man standing after five grueling rounds of penalty kicks.
There was no shortage of entertainment as the second episode also saw new innovations such as the fans taking part in football technique contests and quizzes with fantastic prices from sponsors and affiliates. There were also performances from local dance crews who entertained and delighted the crowd with robust displays amongst other innovations.
Speaking on the success, the founder and head of Team Panenka, Mr. Osahon Austin Aimiuwu expressed satisfaction at both the level of entertainment and increased participation for the event.
