Going by his outings all year long, Godson Brume’s performances have indicated that he was in for something big in the NCAA this year, so when he won the men’s 100m final at the SEC Championships in Baton Rouge, it was hardly a surprise.
The Louisiana State University athlete who was primed for glory, had run a windy 9.97s, one of the fastest times in the US collegiate system this year over 100m a few weeks before his school (LSU) hosted schools within the South Eastern Conference.
He started off his day, anchoring his school to a new NCAA Record of 37.90s to win the men’s 4x100m, teaming up with Dorian Camel, Da’Marcus Fleming and Brandon Hicklin before taking to the track again for the men’s 100m final where he powered to a new Personal Best (PB) of 10.04s (1.3).
He led a 1-2 finish for Nigeria as Nigerian 100m Champion Favour Ashe came 2nd in 10.08s – only his second race of the season. Dorian Camel finished 3rd in a time of 10.19s.
