Nigeria’s fastest man Favour Ashe has arrived in the Team Nigeria camp at the Commonwealth Games Birmingham (CGB) Games Village in the University of Birmingham.
The impressive speedster arrived Friday night looking ready to hit the tracks and do his nation proud.
With a personal best of 9.99s that he ran at the national trials in Benin City, Edo State last month and a respectable showing at the World Athletics Championships in Eugene, Oregon, United States of America a few days back, Ashe is tipped for a podium finish in Birmingham.
His form would be crucial for Team Nigeria in the short sprints (100m, 200m) and the relays (4×100m) for men.
