Nigeria’s Abejoye Oyeniyi came second to clinch a silver medal in the men’s 110 metres hurdles at the African Senior Athletics Championships in Asaba, Delta state.

He clocked 13.87 seconds to finish behind South Africa’s Antonio Alkana who won the race in a time of 13.51seconds.

Wellington Zaza of Liberia came third clocking 13.88 seconds to give the West African nation her first medal in this championship.

Nigeria continues to trail South Africa on the medals table, and with the games coming to an end must go all out to topple the rainbow nation from the top of the pack.
