Nigeria’s 4×100 meters team missed out on a place in the final, finishing 4th in Heat 2 and 17th overall at the IAAF World Relay in Yokohama, Japan on Saturday.
The quartet of Joy Udo-Gabriel, Patience Okon George, Favour Ofili and Rosemary Chukwuma raced for team Nigeria.
Despite posting a season’s best 45.07, overall, they fell short behind Denmark, Ghana and Thailand.
See that girl in green?
Her name is Favor Ofili. She’s 16, NGR’s youngest athlete at the world relays. Got the baton in 3rd positn, ran a brilliant 2nd leg & handed it over in 2nd, ahead of more experienced athletes.
Save her name, she’s one for the future🇳🇬🙌.
