Team Nigeria’s poor run at the on-going 2019 IAAF World Championships in Doha continued yesterday, as the relay teams failed to advance beyond the first round.

After the country’s sole representative in the men shot put event, Chukwuebuka Enekwechi made it to the final amidst tough opponents on Thursday, many Nigerians hoping to see another glorious outing by the relay teams yesterday.

The female team made up of Udo Gabriel Joy, Blessing Okagbare, Ntia Obong Mercy and Rosemary Chukwu put up a disappointing show in the women’s 4x100m relay, finishing 7th despite running a Season Best time of 13.05seconds.

Attention then shifted to the male team, which includes Enoch Adegoke, Ogho-Oghene Egwero, and Seye Ogunlewe. It turned out to be a double tragedy. Apart from struggling to finish last in the race, the team was disqualified after one of the athletes stepped committed a technical foul in the process of baton exchange.

Since the commencement of the championship on September 27, Nigerian athletes have crashed one after the other. The likes of Blessing Okagbare, Divine Oduduru, Patience Okon George, Favour Ofili, Oyesade Olatoye and Chioma Onyekwere had performed below the expectation of Nigerians in Doha. (The Guardian)
