Nigeria’s medal hope Blessing Okagbare-Ighoteguonor has failed in her bid to qualify for the finals of the women’s 100m event.

Okagbare was agonizingly close to sneaking in but she finished just outside the top 8 runners with her 11.09secs time in the last semifinal race.

She will now have to concentrate on the Long Jump and Relay events to win any medal in London.
