Ogunode and Fukushima complete doubles in Guangzhou - Asian Games, Day 5
Guangzhou, China - Femi Seun Ogunode of Qatari and Japanese Chisato Fukushima completed double victories to highlight Day five action at the Asian Games on Thursday (25).
Ogunode, a 19-year-old who has represented Qatar since October last year, had projected himself as the hottest contender for the 200m gold with his heats showing and he won today with a measure of comfort, clocking a national junior record of 20.32 (+1.4m/s).
Kenji Fujimitsu of Japan was second, well behind as Ogunode raised his arms in triumph just as he crossed the finish.
The former Nigerian had won the sprint double in the recent West Asian championships but was entered here in the 200m and 400m. He had earlier won the 400m here in another personal best timing of 45.12s.
