Nigeria to compete at 2023 World Athletics Relays

The World Athletics has confirmed the qualification of Nigeria’s Women’s 4x100m relay and 4x400m mixed relay to compete at World Athletics Guangzhou 23 World Relays earlier scheduled to hold in Budapest, Hungary in August 2023.

The event has been postponed to be held between April and May 2025, according to a statement from World Athletics.

The two relay teams booked their spot in Budapest following the revision of the qualification system by World Athletics.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the decision was made in agreement with the Guangzhou Local Organizing Committee (LOC) and the Chinese Athletics Association (CAA).

The World Athletics Competition Commission with approval of the Council revised the qualification system to include the top eight teams from the World Athletics Championships Oregon22 and the top eight teams from the performance lists.

The principle adopted is to reproduce a similar qualification system allowing several athletes to qualify directly through competitions or based on performances achieved during the qualification period.
