folk sit up and take notice with wins in
the 100, 200 and long jump. She also
anchored NSLTs 4 x 100 relay that placed
second. Akimemi was equally on top of
things, ruling matters in the open 400,
400 intermediate hurdles and as the
anchor for A&Nfs No. 1 finish in the
As good as Omalade is, she had
plenty help from some next of kin --
older sister Taiye, and twin sibling
Omatayo. As a tandem, the Akinremis
accounted for an abundant share of
A&Nfs points. And speaking of points,
one can't overlook Chinweoke Chik

(last year's runner-up). Stumip hit the fin

Aladefa's 11.61. Robb finished sixth with
The 200 had the same results with
Stumip strutting home in 23.55 to win by

considerable muscle with Omalade Akin
remi leading the pack. Omalade dueled
Omotayo for the gold and won out at
53.58 to Omatayo's 53.65. Ifeiye placed
fourth (54.79) and Beckford was sixth
