Who Is Nzubechi Grace Nwokocha? Nzubechi Grace Nwokocha is a member of the Nigerian quartet that also includes Tobi Amusan, Favour Ofili, and Rosemary Chukwuma. On Sunday, the Nigerian quartet won the 4x100m women’s relay event at the Commonwealth Games with a time of 42.10s, setting an African Record in the process.
Tobi Amusan’s lead leg, Ofili down the back straight, Chukwuma’s ferocious lap, and Nwokocha’s anchor blew away defending champions England, forcing 100m and 200m champion Elaine Thompson-Herah to settle for bronze. Although Nigeria’s victory surprised some, it was actually a re-enactment of the team’s feat, which saw them qualify for the final with the fastest qualifying time.
In 2021, she set a new personal best time in the 100m of 11.09 seconds, making her the first Nigerian athlete to qualify for the postponed 2020 Tokyo Olympics. She also won the 100m at the Benin National Sports Festival. At the 2020 Summer Olympics in Athletics, she ran a new personal best time of 11.00 seconds in her heat to qualify for the semi-finals.
