Rosemary Chukwuma runs her sixth-fastest time under all conditions to place 3rd in the women’s 100m at the NCAA Championships in her last dance as a Red Raider.

Chukuma fell short in 2022 and 2023 after finishing 5th and 6th respectively, but this time around she ensured that she got a podium finish while donning the Red, Black and White colours.

McKenzie Long of Ole Miss won the title in 10.82 while LSU’s Brianna Lyston took 2nd in 10.89s just 0.01 ahead of Chukwuma who recorded a 10.90s over a marginally aided tailwind of 2.2m/s which is above the legal wind threshold of 2.0m/s.

Tima Godbless placed 8th with a time of 11.10s to close a successful freshman year over the event.

Chukuma holds a Personal Best (PB) of 10.88s which was achieved two weeks ago at the NCAA West Regionals, making her the second-fastest Nigerian in the event behind Blessing Okagbare (10.79s)
