Congolese are particularly unhappy with the news that Blessing Okagbare will not be part of the on-going All Africa Games here in Congo Brazzaville, Completesportsnigeria.com can report.
The hosts who are athletics freaks had anticipated watching the Nigeria, Africa and Commonwealth queen of the tracks at close range on the tracks of magnificient Kintele Sports Complex.
But few days ago, it emerged that Okagbare had opted to make herself unavailable at the Games.
“I’m a big fan of athletics and had hoped to see her at close range at the All Africa Games, but I’m now disappointed she won’t be here,” Cleves Nkie-Mongo, a sports journalist tersely said during the opening ceremony at Kintele.
