Oduduru won the 100 meters in 9.86 seconds – the fastest ever by an African since Fasuba ran 9.85 seconds 13 years ago in Doha.

Minutes later, Oduduru triumphed in the 200 meters in 19.73 seconds, both times wind-legal.

Though Oduduru was the Nigeria record-holder in the 200m before Friday’s race, his winning time is the third fastest in the world in 2019.
