Enoch Adegoke is one of those fine athletes that Nigerian sports fans pin their hopes on for the future. Deji Obeyingbo, who writes twice a week for @runblogrun on Nigerian Athletics one time and Global/African Athletics another, did this wonderful piece on Enoch and some of the young potential stars in Nigerian sprints. We think that you will like this!

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.
