Favour Ashe: Lightning-fast Nigerian sprinter with Olympic dreams, five interesting facts

Posted : 03 April 2024

Nigerian sprinter Favour Ashe has recently made headlines in the athletics world by achieving the fastest men's 100m time of the 2024 season at the Florida Relays, clocking an impressive 9.99 seconds.

This remarkable feat not only establishes him as a global frontrunner but also positions him as a formidable contender for the upcoming Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

Ashe's stellar performance at the Florida Relays, where he clocked 9.99 seconds in the men’s 100m event, not only sets the benchmark for global sprinting this year but also solidifies his status as the first athlete to achieve a sub-10 second run this season.

Expressing his aspirations for the season, Ashe revealed to Citius Mag, "Last year didn’t really go as planned, but my goal for this season is winning it all," underscoring his determination for a groundbreaking season.

In addition to earning him a place in the record books, Ashe's recent achievement secures his qualification for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, where he aims to make his mark by vying for a spot in the final and continuing Nigeria’s legacy in the men’s 100m event.

However, Ashe encountered a significant setback earlier in the year when he faced legal issues, including charges of fraud. This incident threatened to overshadow his athletic accomplishments and served as a reminder of the challenges athletes can encounter off the track.

Despite these adversities, Ashe's journey underscores the importance of guidance and support in navigating the complexities of young athletic careers.

Beyond his recent successes, Ashe boasts a decorated history in athletics, having contributed to Nigeria's bronze medal in the men’s 4×400 meters at the 2022 Commonwealth Games and earning the title of national 100m champion in 2022, showcasing his enduring talent and pivotal role in Nigerian athletics.
