Reigning African Video games and African Athletics Championships Shot Put champion, Chukwuebuka Enekwechi set a brand new 21.25m private season’s greatest on the 2022 Nigerian Athletics Championships in Benin Metropolis to efficiently defend the Shot Put title he first received final yr.

The mark is an enchancment on his 21.20m season’s greatest which he set early this month on the twenty second African Athletics Championships in Mauritius to efficiently defend the Shot Put title he received in 2018.

Enekwechi is among the many athletes who’ve booked automated tickets to the Oregon World Athletics Championships and has now confirmed his place with the profitable defence of his Nationwide Shot Put title.

The African Video games file holder will probably be hoping to make historical past in Oregon as the primary Nigerian to make the rostrum within the occasion.

He will even be hoping to show the silver medal he received 4 years in the past in Gold Coast, Australia to gold in Birmingham, United Kingdom when the Commonwealth Video games begin instantly after the World Athletics Championships in Oregon.
