Nigeria’s golden girl and multiple-times African champion Blessing Okagbare was in fine form on Sunday at the Shanghai Diamond League as she beat a strong field to win the 100m race.
Okagbare won the race in 10.98 seconds, setting a new personal season’s best, and beating favourites Veronica Campbell-Brown and Shelly Frase-Pryce.
The win got Okagbare four points in the Diamond League race.
American Tori Bowie came second in 11.07, while Michelle-Lee Ahye of Trinidad and Tobago was third in 11.13.
The disappointing Campbell-Brown and Fraser-Pryce finished fourth and fifth respectively in 11.22 and 11.25 seconds.Unblock the FIFA World Cup with ExpressVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
