    Amusan, Nathaniel through as World Athletics Launches ‘Road To Paris’ Olympics

    Nigeria’s top athletes are gearing up for the highly anticipated 2024 Olympics, with several already securing their spots on the grand stage.

    World Athletics recently unveiled its “Road To Paris” qualification tool, providing athletes, fans, and media with a real-time view of the ongoing qualification process leading up to the Paris Olympics.

    World 100m hurdles record holder, Tobi Amusan, 400m barrier runner, Nathaniel Ezekiel, and middle-distance runner, Edosie Ibadin, have qualified for next year’s Olympics, just as World Athletics has launched its tracking qualification tool for the Games.

    The ‘Road To Paris’ qualification tool, launched on Monday by World Athletics, is an online tool to help athletes, media and fans to track qualification process for next year’s Olympics.

    According to World Athletics, the tool provides a real-time view of each event over the course of the Paris qualification period. The qualification system opened last July,2023 and will close in June, 2024.

    Amusan’s 12.32 run last month at the Diamond League final in Oregon, where she successfully defended her 100m hurdles for the second time, re-confirmed what would be her third trip to the Games.

    Ibadin secured his spot at the end of July when he ran 1:44.65 to set a new Nigeria record in the 800m, while Nathaniel punched his ticket at the World Athletics Championships in Budapest, Hungary where he ran 48.47. Both Ibadin and Nathaniel will be seeking to make their debut at the quadrennial Games.

    With Tobi Amusan, Edosie Ibadin, and Nathaniel Ezekiel among the first Nigerian athletes to secure their spots, the anticipation for the 2024 Olympics is building.

    These athletes are determined to make their mark and represent Nigeria with pride on the global stage in Paris.
