July 27, 2013 – Nigerian Athlete Blessing Okagbare Wins 100m Race At London Olympic Anniversary Games As The Fastest Woman In Africa

Nigerian athlete Blessing Okagbare has broken historical records as the fastest woman in Africa after winning African Women’s 100m race today at the London Olympic Anniversary Games.

She broke the record by coming first and winning in 10.79 seconds.

The talented Nigerian athlete just came back from an injury that kept her bound for months.

The race features winning 100m Olympic gold medalist Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce and luckily Okagbare beats her.

In 2009, Blessing Okagbare scored a 100 m/long jump double at the NCAA Women’s Outdoor Track and Field Championship for University of Texas at El Paso, completing an undefeated collegiate streak that year.

In 2010, Blessing won the Nigerian 100 m title, running a time of 11.04 seconds, and stated that she was opting out of the long jump in order to save herself for the upcoming African championships.

What an achievement! Congrats to her.
