Udodi Onwuzurike Wins 200 Meters Race Event At 2023 Bruce Lehane Scarlet And White Invitational

Udodi Onwuzurike has emerged winner of the 200 meters race event at the 2023 Bruce Lehane Scarlet and White Invitational.

In his first collegiate indoor 200-meter race, sophomore Udodi Onwuzurike shattered a Stanford record on February 4, 2023 that stood for 26 years.

Onwuzurike ran 20.61 seconds to win the 2023 Bruce Lehane Scarlet and White Invitational on the 200-meter banked track at the Boston University Track and Tennis Center by 0.42 seconds. The school indoor record of 21.17 seconds, set by Jimmie Johnson in 1997, didn’t have a chance.

Onwuzurike, a Nigerian international competitor, has tied or broken school records nine times. He now holds school records in four events – the indoor 60 and 200, and outdoor 100 and 200.

Through Friday, five NCAA Division I runners had faster times this indoor season. Onwuzurike is seeking his first NCAA Indoor Championships appearance.
