Tokyo 2020: Adegoke Suffers Injury As Italy’s Jacobs Claims Shock Men’s 100m Final Gold 

It was a sad end to an impressive Olympic debut for Enoch Adegoke as he sustained a suspected hamstring as Italy’s Lamont Marcell Jacobs claimed a shock gold in the Olympic 100m final.

After a promising start, Adegoke pulled out in the race to dash the hopes of a first ever medal in the men’s 100m at the Olympics for Nigeria.

Attention will now shift to the duo of Tobi Amusan and Ese Brume who are in the finals of the 100m hurdles and long jump respectively.

On an evening of pulsating drama 26-year-old Jacobs, a former long jumper, powered clear in the last 30m to win in 9.80sec.

American sprinter Fred Kerley was second in 9.84 sec while Canada’s Andre De Grasse flew home in 9.89s to take bronze.

Jacobs is the first man to win the title other than sprinting great Usain Bolt since 2004.

Britain’s Zharnel Hughes was unable to compete after he was disqualified for false start.

    Nothing is working in the country. Wrestling is the only hope, I hope they’ll not find a way to stop her too. That aside Enoch is a real prospect!

  • @Chima you mean nothing is working in the country for you? That should be for you. It’s not for me. Everything is working for me
