IAAF World Championships: Nigerian Trio Fail 400m Semi Final Test
None of the three Nigerian athletes that competed on Monday night in the Women’s 400m semifinal race at the ongoing IAAF World Championships made it to the final.
The trio fell like a pack of cards; finishing 6th, 7th and 8th in their respective semifinals.
Yinka Ajayi who was the ‘fastest’ among the Nigerian trio finished 6th in Heat 2 with a time of 52.10secs.
Patience George-Okon was 7th in her own Heat where she ran a time of 52.60secs
Margaret Bamgbose was the first from the rear in her own semifinal race as she posted a time of 52.23.
The trio will now have to dust themselves fast enough and aim better in the 4x400m relays event which starts on Saturday.
