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.”
