Nigerias Golden Sam Igun gave Nigeria a gold in the sophisticated hop, and jump event. A new games record. For the first time, in the intense competition of world athletics, Africans have carved up the cinders and come out equal. Africans are now winning just as many medals as the established white athletes.
