Fifth Season

Alma Mater:
Houston, 2009


A former hurdler for the University of Houston, Seun Adigun continues the legacy of Cougars returning in a coaching capacity to instill the great tradition of Houston track and field. Adigun begins her fifth season as a member of the coaching staff working with the women's hurdlers.

The All-American arrived on the staff in 2009-2010 with a seasoned collegiate career that is highlighted by five Conference USA titles, four NCAA Regional and six NCAA Championship appearances.

In 2009, she joined the world's elite when she obliterated her personal best in the 60m hurdles at the New Balance Invitational with a time of 8.09, setting a school record and cracking into the top five in the NCAA and the top 15 in the world.

Adigun went on to be named the C-USA Female Track Athlete of the Year for her outstanding performance at the C-USA Outdoor Championships. She continued at the NCAA Midwest Regional, setting a record of 12.88 in the 100m hurdles. Her record-breaking performance secured a trip to the NCAA Outdoor Championships, where she took the bronze in the 100m hurdles.

Adigun has a bachelor's degree in kinesiology-exercise science for Health professions with a minor in psychology. She also holds a Masters degree in physical education-motor behavior, specializing in injury prevention and rehabilitation.

Not merely content with coaching only, Adigun continued to pursue her career dreams as a professional track athlete. Competing internationally for Nigeria, Adigun was a three-time Nigerian Champion, 2010 African 100m hurdles champion, and 2011 All-African Games Champion.

She was a 100m hurdle quarter-finalist and 4x100m semi-finalist in the 2009 Outdoor World Championships in Berlin, Germany as well as a quarter-finalist in the 2010 Indoor World Championships in Doha, Qatar.

Later in 2010 she went on to become a finalist in the 100m hurdles and 4x100m relay in the 2010 Commonwealth Games in New Delhi, India and went on to become a semi-finalist in the 100m hurdles in the 2011 Outdoor World Championships in Daegu, South Korea.

In 2012 Adigun reached the climax of her indoor athletic career when she finished eighth in the Indoor World Championships in Istanbul, Turkey, running a new personal best time of 8.07 to qualify for the final.

She highlighted her career with an Olympic debut in the recent 2012 London Olympics where she competed in the heats of the 100m hurdles.

The Chicago, Ill. native, daughter of Kola and Sikirat Adigun, has a godson named Saige Anthony Noel-Allen.
