Divine Oduduru, a Nigerian athlete, has been disqualified from a 100m race at the ongoing Tokyo Olympics.

Oduduru was supposed to compete in the fifth heat of the race but he was disqualified over a false start.

Nigeria has had an unpleasant outing at the ongoing Olympics in Tokyo, Japan.

Earlier in the day, Blessing Okagbare, the country’s medal hopeful, was banned from the games after she failed a drug test.

D’Tigers, the country’s senior men’s basketball team, also crashed out of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games after losing 71-80 in their last Group B game on Saturday.

Although they had rounded off their pre-Olympic preparations with impressive wins over the U.S. and Argentina, they put up epileptic performances at the Olympics.

Three days ago, 10 Nigerian athletes were banned from the games.
