Nigeria’s fastest man Enoch Adegoke is thrilled to set a new personal record in the 100m.
Adegoke joined the exclusive club of sub-10 seconds runners after racing home first in 9.98 seconds in his first round heat to qualify for the 100m semifinal at the ongoing Tokyo Olympics on Saturday.
The 21-year-old in the process beat the fastest man in the world this year and seventh fastest of all-time, USA’s Trayvon Brommel who tops the pre-Games world list with the 9.77 seconds he ran last month in Florida, USA.
Winning my race with a personal best feels great. I’m excited about this . It’s been a long time coming and I thank God for the result,”Adegoke said.
God has said it and He did it. It’s just about recovering and communicating with my coach and I trust God for a better race in the semis.
“It felt like a dream qualifying for the Olympics and coming here, but then along the line I noticed it was a reality, although the euphoria of the Olympics I have been hearing is not really there.”
