Loading

Tobi Amusan continued her shine on the tracks on Monday as she took her fourth consecutive national title in the women’s 100 metres hurdles event. 

The 27-year-old dipped at 12.78 seconds and was way ahead of her competitors in a one-sided final of the event at the national Olympic trials in Benin, Edo State.

The victory was Amusan’s fourth national title in a row, having coasted to victory at the Olympic trials in Lagos in 2021 before winning twice in Benin in the last two years.

In the women’s 100 meters, Favour Ofili clinched the national title and booked an automatic qualification for the Paris Olympics.

The 21-year-old clocked a season-best of 11.06 seconds to finish ahead of Olayinka Olajide, who came second in 11.37 seconds, and Justina Eyakpobeyan in third.

Kanyinsola Ajayi won the men’s 100-meter crown with a blistering 10.14 seconds, defeating Alaba Akintola, who clocked 10.16 seconds, and Usheoritse Itsekiri, who finished second and third.

Chukwuebuka Enekwechi won his fourth consecutive men’s shot put national title. He only needed three attempts to his 21.37 meters mark which was insurmountable by his opponents.
