Oghenebrume: This is just the beginning

Godson Ogehenebrume, the 2023 NCAA outdoor track and field championships 100m silver medal winner says he has just started his trip to international stardom.

The 20 year old ran inside 10 seconds twice in the championships, first speeding to a lifetime best of 9.93 to secure qualification to the final before rewriting his personal best in the final with a 9.90 run.

The time catapaults him from fifth to third in the Nigerianall-time list, just behind the duo of Olusoji Fasuba (9.85) and Divine Oduduru (9.86).

Oghenebrume has had a geometrical improvement this year, improving from a 10.12 lifetime best in April this year to 9.90 this year.

The Louisiana State University student athlete showed signs of what to come during the indoor season, improving his 60m indoor best from 6.89 in February last year to 6.60 in February 2023.

Outdoors, the Nigerian became a beast on the track. He first improved his personal best to 10.04 to win his first SEC championships 100m title ahead of Favour Ashe of Auburn University at the LSU Bernie Moore Stadium in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Oghenebrume left his best for the biggest collegiate state in track and field, legally running inside 10 seconds twice to claim a silver medal.
The Nigerian says he is just scratching the surface of what he can do.

‘To everyone who supported Brume…from out my heart I say Thank U …this is jus the beginning! #LSU’, wrote Ogehenebrume on twitter.

The 20 year old will now shift his focus to the World Athletics Championships in Budapest, Hungary where he will be seeking to return Nigeria to the 100m final 16 years after Fasuba last did.
