Nigeria’s women’s 4x100m relay team secured a dominant gold medal at the ongoing African athletics championships in Douala, Cameroon, on Monday.

Tobi Amusan, the current world record holder in the 100m hurdles, anchored the team to victory with a flawless final leg clocking a time of 42.76s.

The Nigerian ladies beat Team Liberia and Ghana to the title.

Justina Eyakpobeyan, Tima Godbless, Olayinka Olajide, and Amusan executed a seamless baton exchange, solidifying their position atop the podium.

This win marks Nigeria’s third consecutive gold medal in the women’s 4x100m relay at the African Championships, extending their undefeated streak since 2018.

Interestingly, Amusan has been a constant presence on all three winning teams, showcasing her exceptional sprinting ability even beyond her hurdling expertise.

Nigeria currently boasts four gold medals at the Championships.

Chukwuebuka Enekwechi ignited the team’s success with his victory in the men’s Shot Put.

The women’s Discus event saw a Nigerian sweep, with Ashley Anumba claiming the top honour.
