World Athletics Disqualifies Nigeria’s 4X400M Team

World Athletics has disqualified Nigeria’s women 4x400m team from the 2020 Tokyo Olympics following some technical errors in the race where they secured qualification at the Lagos Open Athletics Championships on June 24.

The Nigerian quartet – Nse Imaobong, Favour Ofili, Knowledge Omovoh, and Patience Okon-George – ran a Season’s Best 3:26.83 at the event, which was held at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos.

The win ensured they climbed to 13th on the WA Top List from the 18th position they initially occupied.

Though WA did not give reasons for the country’s disqualification, findings showed that the result was not ratified by WA, who didn’t reflect the qualification results on the Road to Tokyo tool used to determine qualified athletes on their website, when the final list was published on Thursday.
