Nigeria’s Enoch Adegoke is not on the list of favorites to win a medal at the 100m Events in Tokyo but the Nigerian international might surprise most foreign tabloids as he breezes into final of the 100m event ahead of medal favorite, America’s Trayvon Bromell.
The Nigerian earn second place in the second semifinals in 10.00 behind Great Britain’s Hughes, who qualified automatically with a time of 9.98.
Medal favorite Trayvon Bromell, who ran an equal time with Enoch Adegoke came third and then squeezed out of a fastest qualifier’s spot as four athletes dipped beneath the ten-second mark in the final semi-final.
Enoch is now the first Nigerian Olympics 100m finalist since Ezenwa in Atlanta 96.
The final appears wide open – any of the eight athletes through will count themselves as realistic medal contenders.
