Okagbare Listed Tor Oslo Diamond League

Written By: SD Reporter


Nigerian athlete Blessing Okagbare has been listed for the long jump event at the IAAF Diamond League meeting on Thursday in Oslo, Norway.

This will be the Nigerian’s first ever trip to the Oslo event and she will hope to jump farther than the 6.52 metres she recorded early this month in Oregon, United states.

Okagbare will be up against three of the athletes who finished ahead of her in Oregon.

She ran a personal season’s best time of 11.16 seconds last Sunday to place second behind Dafne Schippers in the 100m, at the Fanny Blankers-Koen meeting in Hengelo, Holland.
