Nigeria’s Divine Oduduru sets five all-time marks in US

Five-time African Junior Champion Divine Oduduru is making history in United State after helping The Texas Tech men’s track & field to their highest ever ranking in the week-two U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association indoor rankings.

The 2016 Rio Olympic 200-meter Qualifier and semi-finalist who ran in the same heat with Usain Bolt helped Texas Tech men’s track & field program to their highest ranking in the program history with his outstanding performances.

Divine Oduduru who is now a freshman at the Texas University is the 60-meter and 200-meter Texas Tech indoor record holder. Divine Oduduru has totaled five all-time marks in all five races in which he has competed this year.

This past weekend at the Texas Tech Open, Oduduru clocked three top-two all-time Texas Tech marks, two of which were school records. In the 60-meter preliminaries, Oduduru topped his previous No. 2 ranked 6.66 time with a new mark of 6.64. He then went on to claim the new school record title with a 6.58 final mark, also serving as the third-ranked 60m time in the nation.

The next day, Oduduru ran only the second indoor 200-meter dash of his life, the first of which broke a 20-year old school record. This blazing-fast 20.18 run pushed down his previous time of 20.49 and secured the No. 3 all-time NCAA record. His 20.18 time sits first in the world.
