Nigeria’s light in the 100 metres event at the Tokyo Olympics, Enoch Adegoke continued on an onward progression after his injury to finish third in his second ever indoor meet at the National Breuninger Hall Meeting in Erfurt.
Enoch Adegoke clocked a time of 6.73s, a third Personal Best (PB) in succession this year behind the winner of the race, Joshua Hartmann was who clocked a time of 6.60s ahead of Yannick Wolf in 6.70s and
and Daniel Hoffmann 6.72 (6.70 1h2).
In his debut experience at the Olympics was an impressive one as he became Nigeria’s first 100m Olympics finalist since 1996 clocking 10.00s in heat 2 of men’s 100m semis 25 years after Davidson Ezinwa at Atlanta 1996.
The 21-year-old looking to finish well with a fast block start, he was in the medal mix at 60 meters, but couldn’t finish the race in the final due to an hamstring injury.
Adegoke has continued to improve his time since his injury in August 2021 clocking 10.88s and 10.79s in September 2021.
