The President of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN), Tonobok Okowa, has sent congratulatory messages to the duo of Tobiloba Amusan and Ese Brume for their victory at the World Athletics Championship, which ended last night in Oregon, United States.

Just when many athletics followers thought that Team Nigeria might return from Oregon empty-handed, Amusan came to the party with a huge surprise in the early hours of Monday, winning the gold medal in the 100m hurdles, the first ever by a Nigerian in the history of the World Athletics Championship.

Okowa, who stayed awake to watch the two Nigerians, could not hide his feelings.

Quoting him, he said “I can’t believe what has just happened in the history of Nigeria’s athletics,” End of Quote.
