Blessing Okagbare- Ighoteghor made a big come back at the weekend with an impressive 22.04seconds run at the 2018 Wes kittley invitational in Texas.
Her feat has erased the 200m women African record held by Mary Oyali- Omagbemi since August 1996.
Blessing who spent most of last season nursing an injury, after going under knife, became the undisputed Nigerian Fastest woman having the 10.7seconds women 100m national record under her belt.
The athlete will remain in Texas to have a go at the 100m and it remain to be seen if she can also crack the African record held by Ivorian Sprinter Murielle Ahoure since 2016.
“We are extremely glad that Okagbare is back to her best form. Certainly we would see what happens at the African Championship on Asaba” said AFN president, Solomon Ogba yesterday.
