Nigeria 400m Dou, Dubem Nwachukwu and Imaobong Nse Uko both finished in 6th position during qualifiers on Sunday morning at the World Athletics Championship (WCH) in Budapest, a performance that wasn’t enough to see them advance to the next round in their categories.
In the Heat 3 of the women’s 400m, Imaobong Nse Uko recorded a time of 52.24s and finished 6th position. Imaobong’s time was not enough to secure her a qualification spot for the semifinal.
For Dubem Nwachukwu, he recorded a time of 45.60s to place 6th in Men’s 400m, also failing to advance.
It is the hope of many that other Team Nigeria athletes still very much in contention for medal places get positive performances
