Blessing Okagbare breaks 22-Year Record

Like fine wine, the older Blessing Okagbare gets, the faster she seems to become.

Running in the 200m race at the Wes Kittley Invitational Track and Field Meet at the Abilene Christian University, Okagbare ran an impressive 22.04 seconds, Punch reports.

Her time beat the previous African record of 22.07 seconds set by Mary Onyali in 1996 – 22 years ago!

Okagbare also beat her previous personal record of 22.23 seconds she set in the 2014 Eugene Diamond League.
