Fastest man in Africa, Olusoji Fasuba, joins Royal Navy

Africa's 100m record holder, Olympic bronze medallist, indoor 60m world champion, and one of the fastest men on the planet, Nigerian-born Olusoji Fasuba has just completed nine months of training to become a logistics specialist in the Royal Navy.

 28 year old Olusoji retired from professional running and joined the Navy last May to provide a more settled life for his wife and baby daughter. He's married to 400m runner Ngozi Nwokocha, and they have seven-month-old daughter Annabelle.
As a runner, Olusoji set an African record in the 100m of 9.85 seconds, just 0.27 of a second slower than the fastest man in the world, Usain Bolt.

Royal Navy ???

WTF

Why Royal Navy?
Is he GAY???
The AirForce or Army is best if he's not GAY.

If he's not gay now, by the time he retires from the Navy, he'd be so gay, even his mother won't recognise him :)

The Sports Commission always screws athletes. Francis Obikwelu, at one time the fastest Nigerian tuk up Portuguese citizenship 'cos Nigerian officials did not come to his aid when his girlfriend died in a stadium while he was competing for Nigeria...Fasuba na for Queen and country jor, no mind detractors.

The way Naija lets talents go to waste is sooo disappointing..we forget that everything adds to National Glory and many countries are known for their athletes alone... Speed is in dis dude's DNA, his mom (of Jamaican descent)was faster dan him for many years while training him back in Sapele,...Thats d kind of talent our country should jump up, support and celebrate... not useless lawmakers who only care bout law-breaking!

Best Wishes to him n his family jare!
