Blessing Okagbare-Ighoteguonor wins silver at Paris

Blessing Okagbare-Ighoteguonor came second as she won silver after racing home in 10.80 seconds to come a close second behind Jamaican star, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, in the
women’s 100 metres at the Paris Diamond League on Saturday.  
She has expressed delight over her good performances.
Fraser-Pryce stopped the clock in 10.74 seconds (the fastest time in the world this year) as she led from the sound of the gun to the very end, winning ahead of Okagbare, 10.80, and American English Gardner, 10.97.
Okagbare’s African record and her personal best is the 10.79 seconds she set in London in 2013 and Saturday’s time is now her second fastest ever. Saturday’s sub-11 seconds run was remarkably Okagbare’s career.
