Okagbare shifts focus to long jump by JerryB: 2:1 pm On 8 Aug 2016
After her unimpressive outing at the Rio
2016 Olympic Games, Nigerian athlete
Blessing Okagbare will be competing in the
long jump event at the IAAF Diamond
League.
In Rio 2016,
Okagbare
competed in the
women’s 100m,
200m and
4x100m relay
but failed to
impress in any of
them.
Shifting her
attention to the
IAAF Diamond
League which
begins today, the
Delta State-born
athlete will now
compete in the
long jump event.
On the provisional list of entries announced
by the organisers on Monday, August 22,
Okagbare is confirmed to return to long jump
after opting out of the event to concentrate
on the 100 and 200m in Rio.
She will be up against reigning world and
Olympic championTianna Bartoleta of the
United States for the winning prize reward of
$10,000 and the maximum points (10) on
offer at the event.
She is a one-time IAAF Diamond League
winner of this event, jumping 6.98m to beat
then reigning world and Olympic champion,
USA’s Britneey Reese (6.96m).
