Nigerian fastest female athlete, Blessing Okagbare made a huge comeback at the weekend with an impressive 22.04seconds run at the 2018 Wes Kittley Invitational in Texas.
She erased the 200m women African record held by Mary Onyali-Omagbemi since August 1996.
Okagbare, who spent most of last season nursing an injury after undergoing surgery, became the undisputed Nigerian fastest woman having the 10.79seconds women 100m national record under her belt
“We’re extremely glad Okagbare is back to her best form. Certainly we will see what happens at the African championships in Asaba,” said former AFN president, Solomon Ogba.
