African Junior Champion, Enoch Adegoke can now have a calm breath after his 100m time of 10.12s set at the MoC Grand Prix back in June, has been ratified by IAAF.
The time now stands as his Personal Best (PB), having been finally updated on the IAAF site after several weeks of delay due to reasons unknown.
Few weeks after the Grand Prix in Lagos, Adegoke tried getting close or bettering this mark all to no avail. He was present at the Cameroon Grand Prix, where he won the 100m final in a then PB of 10.15s.
He lowered this further, clocking a new PB of 10.14s to win his semi-final heat at the National Championships in Kaduna, which is the fastest time ran by a home based athlete on home soil in the past decade and agonizingly close to the World Championships qualifying mark of 10.10s.
With his official PB now ratified, the speedster will have much confidence mentally heading to the African Games in Rabat, where he’ll hope to better this mark and qualify for Doha.
