The chances of Team Nigeria equaling their last outing at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow let alone surpass same feat may no longer be realistic.
However, there is still glimmer of hope at the ongoing games in Gold Coast, Australia, which entered Day 5 today. There was heartbreak for Team Nigeria in the 100m women’s event where the trio of Joy Udo-Gabriel, Jennifer Madu and Isoken Igbinosun all crashed out in the semifinals on Sunday. But the duo of Seye Ogunlewe and Enoch Adegoke gave Nigerians something to cheer in the men’s 100m as they both secured berths in today’s final.
In the men’s 400m Heats, both Chidi Okezie and Nathaniel Samson qualified for the semis.
It was also a good day in the field events for Team Nigeria as both Chukwuebuka Enekwechi and Kalu Eze qualified for the final of the Shot Put on Monday
Enekwechi threw the second fastest throw of 20.66m in the qualifiers, which puts him in a very good position for a medal.
