Nigeria suffers major blow as Adegoke fail in men's 100m final - Tokyo Olympics
Nigeria’s Enoch Adegoke on Sunday failed to deliver at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, as he pulled up injured in the men’s 100 metres final.
The 21-year-old sprint star had delighted his compatriots by storming into the event’s final earlier in the day to raise hopes for the much-awaited medal after series of a disappointment for Team Nigeria.
Press reports that Adegoke had qualified with a time of 10.00 seconds in second place from semi-final 2.

It was achieved moments after teammate Usheoritse Itsekiri had failed to qualify after finishing seventh in semi-final 1 with 10.29 secs.
Even then, it was more assuaging for Team Nigeria after Divine Oduduru’s disqualification in the event in round one on Saturday.
Adegoke’s failure meant another big medal hope failure for Team Nigeria’s contingent of track and field members after Blessing Okagbare’s suspension for a doping violation.
This is a team now with several dashed hopes, following Grace Nwokocha’s loss in the women’s 100m event and ten teammates being declared ineligible.
The team may now look forward to redemption from Tobiloba Amusan in the women’s 100m hurdles, Ese Brume in the women’s long jump and Nwokocha in the women’s 200m.
