Nigerian shot put star, Chukwuebuka Enekwechi and hurdle athlete, Tobi Amusan were on the track today at the world athletics indoor tour.
Chukwuebuka opened his 2020 with an impressive 20.37m throw and a season’s best to finish fourth in the men’s shot put at the ongoing World Athletics Indoor Tour in Dusseldorf.
Croatian Filip Mihaljevic won with a PB & World Lead throw of 21.52m ahead of Konrad Bukowiecki who threw 20.92m and Tomas Stanek with 20.89m
His mark currently takes him to number one in Nigeria and Africa.
Tobi Amusan in very fine fashion, had won earlier the first heat of the women’s 60 metre Hurdle at the World Indoor Tour in Dusseldorf in 7.99s ahead of Alina Talay who clocked 8.02s and Finland’s Reetta Hurske in 8.10s.
However, Amusan clocked 7.96s to finish third in the women’s 60 metres hurdle final at the world indoor tour in Dusseldorf.
The race was won by USA’s Christina Clemons in 7.91s, ahead of home favourite, Cindy Roleder in 7.94s.
Amusan’s time today was not close to the one she had last week where she clocked a personal best of 7.84 to win the 60 metres hurdle at the Karlsruhe indoor meeting in Germany. A time that brought her 0.02s close to the African Record set by Glory Alozie in 1999 and doubles as the 2nd fastest time in the World in 2020.
Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan had opened up her season over 60 metres Hurdle in Albuquerque with a Personal Best (PB) of 7.87s.
