Nigerian sprinter Raymond Ekevwo has broken a record to become the fastest man in Africa.
This is following his 9.96s finish in the men’s 100m at the 2019 African Games in Morocco.
It was a fantastic race by Ekevwo whose time of 9.96s is a new Personal Best (PB) and a new African Record.
His victory has given the country its first gold in the men’s 100m at the African Games since 2007.
Ekevwo becomes only the second Nigerian to run sub-10s since 2013 with Divine Oduduru the other runner.
