Tobi Ogunkanmi has made great strides in his development in what is only his second full season as an athlete. He came 2nd in the 100m at the U23/U20 Southern Championships at Bedford recently. Unfortunately windy conditions that day meant he missed out on the qualifying time of 10.55 for the Euros in Boras. His PB at that time was 10.56 set earlier in June and a mere 100th of a second off the time that he needed.
We are delighted to announce that on Saturday at the Bauhaus Junior Gala in Mannheim, Tobi achieved the qualifying time, running a 10.52 coming 2nd to Great Britain team mate Chad Miller in the second heat of the U20 Mens 100m. That’s a new PB and puts Tobi in the reckoning with National selection taking place on Monday 8th July. Let’s hope he makes the plabe to Boras. Well done Tobi!
