ASHE LEADS BATTLE FOR NIGERIA’S FIRST 100M GOLD AT 2022CWG
August 2, 2022
Nigeria’s fastest man Favour Ashe will lead the men’s battle for a historic gold medal in the men’s 100m as the track and field event of the on-going 2022 commonwealth games gets underway this Tuesday in Birmingham.
Since Nigeria made her debut at the games in 1950, no Nigerian man has mounted the podium as commonwealth champion and Ashe will lead Godson Brume and Raymond Ekevwo in the historic chase.
Ashe is the reigning Nigerian king of speed and the national leader courtesy the 9.99 seconds he ran almost two months ago at the Nigerian championships in Benin City.
The 20 year old carries the hope of Nigerians yearning for first 100m gold after three silver medal wins by Davidson Ezinwa, Uchenna Emedolu and Olusoji Fasuba.
