Nigerian youngster Favour Ashe, is back and better than ever this season, having set a world record in 2024.


At the Harvey Glance Tide & Tigers Dual Meet in Birmingham, Alabama, Ashe dominated the 60-meter event, clocking in a ridiculously fast 6.53 seconds to triumph against Jekovan Rhetta in 6.66 seconds and Makanaishe Charamba in 6.72 seconds.



Given that it was his first race of the season and that the time was extremely near to his personal best of 6.51 seconds, his scorching effort had fans and enthusiasts talking. 


Since making his indoor debut in 2022, Ashe has opened with a time of 6.53 seconds. Many now believe he can surpass Deji Aliu’s 6.48 second national record and perhaps shatter the collegiate record as well.
