Nigeria’s Enoch Adegoke on Sunday qualified for the final of the men’s 100m heat at the ongoing 2020 Tokyo Olympics Games in Japan.

Adegoke became Nigeria’s first 100m Olympic finalist since 1996, clocking 10.00s in Heat 2 of men’s 100m semi-final 25 years after Davidson Ezinwa at Atlanta ’96.

Saga Gist reports that Adegoke had on Saturday beat the fastest man in the world this year and seventh fastest of all-time, USA’s Trayvon Brommel, in the men’s 100 metres event.

Adegoke ran 9.98 seconds in the men’s 100 metres to beat Brommel, who tops the pre-Games world list with the 9.77 seconds he ran last month in Florida, USA, and qualified for Sunday’s semi-finals.

The 21-year-old sprinter, who ran on Lane 6 of Heat 2 at the Olympic Stadium in the event’s first round, beat Femi Ogunode, who represented Qatar and came in at 10.02.
