Okagbare Sets New African Record in 100 Metres


Okagbare set a record of 10.86 seconds.

Nigeria’s Blessing Okagbare has broken the African Women’s 100 metres record at the ongoing Sainsbury’s Anniversary Games in London after posting an impressive 10.86 seconds winning time in the second semi-final of the Women’s race.

Okagbare has been in tremendous form lately as she also leapt 7m recently to become only the second Nigerian lady after Chioma Ajunwa to do same.

Expectedly, Okagbare tops the list of 19 athletes to represent Nigeria at next month’s World Athletics Championships in Moscow where Nigeria hopes to end her 13 years of medal drought.
