LEBANON, Tenn.--Fresh off of the greatest season a women's track and field athlete has put up in Cumberland history, Praise Idamadudu wins gold representing her home country, Nigeria, in the 4x100m relays at the 2022 African Athletics Championships.

The team made up of Idamadudu, Tima Godbless, Praise Ofoku, and Tobi Amusan crossed the line in a time of 44.45s to take first. The team shocked everyone after posting the slowest qualifying time in the preliminary heats yesterday. 

With the win, Idamadudu and the Nigerian women's 4x100m relay team will race again at the World Athletics Championships in July held in Eugene, Oregon. 

Idamadudu won the National Championship this season in the Outdoor 400m and was a four time All-American finishing as the National Runner-Up in the Indoor 200m and 400m and the Outdoor 200m.
