For the first time in 25 years, Nigeria will have a representative in the final of the 100m men’s event at the Olympic Games. Enoch Adegoke broke that jinx on Sunday, Aug 1, qualifying for the final of 100m men’s event at the ongoing Tokyo Olympics.


Adegoke, who is participating in the Olympic Games for the very first time, qualified for the final after running 10.00secs in his semi-final race.

This is the first time Nigeria is making it to the final in the men’s 100m event since Davidson Ezinwa achieved the feat at the Atlanta 1996 Olympic Games.

Before Sunday’s semi final race, Adegoke had given room for optimism when he stunned the world on Saturday winning his Heat with a new personal Best Time of 9.98secs.

Adegoke beat Asian record holder, Femi Ogunode, British star, Zharnel Hughes, and 2021 World leader, Travon Brommel, to win his 100m heat. With Saturday’s feat, he became the 11th Nigerian in history to go under 10 seconds and the 10th joint-fastest Nigerian in history.
