Nigeria’s mixed relay team reach final of World U-20 Championships

Nigeria’s mixed 4x400m quartet progressed to the final of the World U20 Championships after winning Heat 2 of their race in a Championship Record (CR) of 3:21.66.

The organizers of the tournament were criticised for the scheduling of the events as men and women’s 400m Heats were placed in the morning session with the individual heats of the 400m taking place less than two hours after that.
