World Athletics Championships: Enekwechi sets new shot put personal season’s best

Reigning Africa Games and African Athletics Championships shot put champion, Chukwuebuka Enekwechi has set a new 21.25m personal season’s best to successfully defend the Shot Put title he first won last year.

The mark is an improvement on his 21.20m season’s best which he set early this month at the 22nd African Athletics Championships in Mauritius to successfully defend the Shot Put title he won in 2018.

Enekwechi is among the athletes who have booked automatic tickets to the Oregon World Athletics Championships and has now confirmed his place with the successful defence of his National Shot Put title.

The African Games record holder will be hoping to make history in Oregon as the first Nigerian to make the podium in the event.

He will also be hoping to turn to gold, the silver medal he won four years ago in Gold Coast-Australia in Birmingham, United Kingdom when the Commonwealth Games start immediately after the World Athletics Championships in Oregon.
