Okagbare Relishes Setting New PTS Athletics Meeting Record In Slovakia


Blessing Okagbare says she is happy for executing another perfect race when she ducked inside 11 seconds for the third time this season Wednesday evening at the P-T-S athletics meeting in Bratislava, Slovakia.

The seven time Nigeria 100m champion ran 10.98 seconds to win the race and in the process smashed the 11.09 seconds meeting record set in June 1983 by Czech Republic woman, Jarmila Kratochvílová.

“Thank God for another healthy race/win today,” said the Nigerian 100/200m record holder on her Facebook wall after the race.

Okagbare has now broken 11 seconds thrice this year. She ran her first sub-11 seconds of the season at the USTAF invitational in Eugene, Oregon in April before scorching to a 10.90 seconds personal season’s best at the Wanda Diamond League meeting in Doha, Qatar last week.
