    Tokyo 2020: 2 Nigerian Athletes, Blessing Okagbare And Grace Nwokocha Book Semi Final Spots in Women’s 100 Meters

    Blessing Okagbare

    On Friday, July 30, 2021, the Track and Field events at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games officially began. In Heats 5 and 6, respectively, Grace Nwokocha and Blessing Okagbare began their quest for Nigeria in the Women’s 100 meters.

    With a personal best time of 11 seconds, Nwokocha qualifies for the semi-final, while Okagbare was also excellent in her heat, qualifying for the semi-final with 11.04 seconds.

    The Athletics Integrity Unit has barred ten Nigerian contingents from competing in the Games, making it a difficult week for Nigerian athletes. Nigeria suffered a major setback as a result of this decision, and its chances of earning a medal at the Athletics events were less.

    Blessing Okagbare on Thursday, July 29th,2021, accused the Athletics Federation of Nigeria on her official Twitter account. The officials’ incompetence, she says, was the reason the contingents were unable to compete.

    Her tweet:

    The Athletics Federation of Nigeria is the governing organization for athletics in the country. It belongs to the African Athletics Confederation and the International Association of Athletics Federations.
