The three Nigerians registered for the 400m Women’s event have all qualified for the semifinals at the ongoing IAAF World Championships in London.

The trio are Yinka Ajayi who finished third in her Heat with a time of 51.58secs, Patience Okon-George who finished 2nd in Heat 5 with 51.83secs as well as Margret Bamgbose whose Season Best time of 51.57secs earned a place in the semis.
