World Athletics Championships: Nigeria finish 6th in 4x400m mixed relay final

By Emmanuel Okogba
Nigeria competed in the first track final of the ongoing World Athletics Championships in Oregon, USA, but the outcome was a sixth place finish.
The team had qualifed with the best finishing time of 3:14:59 but failed to improve on it, running a slower time of 3:16:21 to finish only ahead of Italy and the Republic of Ireland.
Patience George had swapped the second leg she ran in the heat for Imaobong Uko’s anchor leg as she did a quicker split of 50.72s and was hoping it will help her cover more ground faster, but the tweaking didn’t yield the expected result.
Dominican Republic won gold in 3:09.82. Netherland set a National Record of 3:09.90 to win Silver, and USA came 3rd in a SB of 3:10.16.
