Tokyo Olympics: Nigeria finish last in 4x400m mixed relay race..

Nigeria failed to qualify for the final after finishing last in the semi-final first heat of the 4×400 mixed relay at the ongoing Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

The country was represented by Ifeanyi Emmanuel Ojeli, Imaobong Nse Uko, Samson Oghenewegba Nathaniel and Patience Okon George.

Though they finished last, the quartet ran a new African Record of 3:13.60 while Team USA and Dominica got disqualified.

During the race, Nigeria deployed the male-female-male-female strategy while other countries used male-female-female-male.

Ojeli took the first leg, Uko second and the third leg was taken by Nathaniel, who opened up a gap of over 100 metres against other female runners.

However, male counterparts from other teams caught up with George, making the Nigerian team finish fifth.
