Divine was born 7th of October, 1996. He’s from Ovwor-Olomu in Ughelli South L.G.A of Delta State. While most of you are still contemplating if he’s 20 years or not, let me run through his famous achievements.
He is a five-time African Junior Champion and was the 2014 World Junior Silver Medalist in the 200 metres. He was the gold medalist in both the 100 metres and 200 metres at the 2013 African Youth Athletics Championships . He was a finalist in the 200m at the 2013 World Youth Championships in Athletics. He won the 200 m race at the 2013 African Junior Championships and was also a member of the Gold medal winning 4 × 100 m relay quartet. Very impressive right?
Divine also participated in the just concluded Rio 2016 Olympic games where he ran closely with the Jamaican born sprinter, Usain Bolt. He didn’t win though, but it’s fair to call him the fastest Nigerian 200m athlete.
It’s sad to think many people know him for that video other than the sport he plays.
WarriUpdate is crushing on this fine gentleman, an epitome of hardwork, a worthy Deltan who is making giant strides across the globe. One hero whose song is not sung! Oduduru Ejovwokoghene Divine na man u be!
