Sports: Okagbare disqualified, Oduduru finishes last in 200m

While some Nigerians expressed disappointment with Okagbare’s poor show in Doha, some were of the view yesterday that too much pressure might have affected the athlete.

After Okagbare’s disqualification, Nigerians’ attention shifted to Divine Oduduru in the men’s 200m semifinal. But he also fumbled, finishing last in the race with a disappointing 20.84 seconds.

However, the duo of Patience Okon George and Favour Ofili qualified in their various 400m heats yesterday. While George ran 51.77seconds to qualify in Heat 2, Ofili ran a Personal Best time of 51.51seconds in Heat 4.(TheGuardian)
