African Junior Champion, Enoch Adegoke is steadily climbing the ladder as one of Nigeria’s best sprinters in the 100m this season, after clocking a massive Personal Best (PB) of 10.15s to win the event at the 2019 Cameroon Grand Prix.
The fast rising speedster who has been very consistent in the event this year, smashed his former season’s best of 10.29s, which he did to clinch the African title in Abidjan. He also erased his previous PB of 10.19s, which he ran at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia.
Though he has gone faster this season after winning the MoC Grand Prix in a supposed PB of 10.12s, this time is yet to be officially registered by the IAAF which gives doubts on its validity.
Adegoke’s brilliant performance in Cameroon, confirms Nigeria now has five athletes that have gone under the 10.15s mark, with three already hitting the world champs standard of 10.10s.
And with the National Championships set to hold in Kaduna from July 25th – 27th, all things being equal we may get to see more including Adegoke punch their tickets to Doha.
