Hurdler, Ajoke Odumosu brouight some delight to Team Nigeria Monday evening when she qualified for the semi-final of the 400m hurdles.
Running in the third qualifying heat, the Nigerian was a comfortable winner in 54.44s.
However, even though her time is a new Nigerian record, it was only good enough to put her in sixth place in the list of 21 semi final qualifiers.
The women's 400m hurdles comes up on Wednesday evening.
But in the women's 200m flat, Team Nigeria reverted to type with her two entries failing to progress.
