2. Nigeria: Injury ends Enoch Adegoke’s Olympic podium dream

Enoch Adegoke’s dream of becoming the first Nigerian man to win a 100 meters Olympic medal came to an end on Sunday as he pulled up midway into the final of the blue riband event which was won by Italian sprinter, Lamont Marcell Jacobs. Fred Kerley of the United States won the silver while Andre de Grasse of Canada came in third place. After Great Britain’s Zharnel Hughes was disqualified for a false start, the race finally got underway with Adegoke, in lane 8 going neck-to-neck with De Grasse in lane 9, before the Nigerian pulled up at the 60-metre mark. It was a sad end to a glorious campaign for Adegoke who ran a lifetime best of 9.98s in the heats. He also equaled his previous personal best of 10.00s during Tokyo 2020.

4. Boxer Samuel Takyi wins Ghana’s first Olympic medal since 1992

Ghanaian boxer, Samuel Takyi has won his Olympic quarter-final to guarantee himself a medal at Tokyo 2020, the first Olympic medal in his country in 29 years. Takyi beat Colombia’s 32-year-old southpaw, David Ceiber Avila, a far more experienced fighter, in the quarter-final, taking two of three rounds to send the Ghanaian contingent in the stands wild. Similar celebrations were happening across Ghana on a historic day in the ring, and they may get louder as Takyi moves on to the semi-final where he’ll face the USA’s Ragan Duke. Duke eliminated Irish boxer Kurt Walker in his quarter-final bout. The 20-year-old has caused a sensation by making the podium after his selection for the boxing team in Tokyo initially caused eyebrows to raise. Now it’s hands in the air as “The Golden Ring Warrior” has brought it home, the first Olympic medal since the football team won bronze at Barcelona 1992. And the first boxing medal since middleweight Prince Amartey who took the bronze in Munch 1972.

She pointed at the scoreboard even before crossing the line in 10.61 seconds on Saturday, July 31, to defend her title and lead a Jamaican sweep of the gold, silver, and bronze medals. Her time was just .01 seconds fast than Griffith Joyner, who set the old record of 10.62 at the 1988 Seoul Olympics. Thompson-Herah beat her top rival, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, by .13 seconds. Shericka Jackson rounded out the top three, winning bronze in 10.76. Featured image: @ayandathabethe_/Instagram
