Nigeria’s Enoch Adegoke made it into the 100m final at the ongoing Tokyo 2020 Olympics, after finishing second in semi-final 2 as he ran 10.00.

Following a photo finish with Trayvon Bromell after both timed 10 seconds dead, Adegoke, was awarded second place.

Bromell was the favourite for the race prior to the Olympics, having set the fastest time this year of 9.77sec, the seventh-quickest in history.

However, Adegoke beat the United States’ best, coming in just behind Zharnel Hughes who kept the British hope alive by winning the second semi in 9.98seconds.

Adegoke had earlier at the Olympics joined the exclusive club of sub-10 seconds runners after running 9.98 seconds to win his first-round heat which also booked his place in the semi-finals of the 100m event in Tokyo.

He becomes the 11th Nigerian in history to run a sub 10.
