They didn’t simply win gold; these ladies also set a new record! That’s right!
Tobi Amusan led the Nigerian women’s 4x100m team, with Favour Ofili in the back straight, Rosemary Chukwuma on the third leg, and Grace Nwokocha anchoring the team at the 2022 Commonwealth Games at the Alexander Stadium in Birmingham.
They began well and ended brilliantly, winning them GOLD at the finish line.
Both England and Jamaica finished in second place and third. Still, Nigeria’s women’s team produced an African record time of 42.10 seconds, the fastest time ever raced by a Nigerian female team.
