And it doesn’t stop there, this new record also makes her the first Nigerian woman to go under the 1-minute mark.

Though she will not be competing in the Semifinal of the Women’s Swimming 100m Freestyle event as her time was not among the top 16, she however has made huge strides, making her Olympic debut and setting a new swimming national record at 17!

Congratulations Champ! This was no small feat.
