Elaine Thompson-Heron is one of the most spectacular athletes of this generation. She may be as Deji Ogeyinbgo notes in his second column for RunBlogRun, the greatest runner of all time in the women's 100m. Her consistency in 2021 was mind boggling.

In her races, this observer notes that her last 40 meters are her strength, she does not shut down like most other sprinters do, and she (and Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce) push to the bitter end of the race.

This is the first piece by Deji Ogeyingo, a Nigerian track & field journalist, for RunBlogRun. He will be appearing twice a week, one Mondays, he will write on Nigerian athletics and Fridays, he will write about African Athletics and other subjects that interest him.

In his first piece, Deji wanted to give us his perspective on Nigerian athletes who have competed for Nigeria, and also the US Collegiate system as well. Nigeria has a tremendous number of athletes who compete in the U.S. system, and also, for other countries.
