Two Nigerians are in the star-cast of athletes that would be competing at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium in Rabat,Morocco.

It is where the IAAF Diamond League train will make its ninth of 14 stops on Friday.

The Nigerian duo that would be competing for points and cash in Rabat are sprinter Blessing Okagbare-Ighoteguonor and sprint hurdler, Tobiloba Amusan.

This will be the first time the two Nigerians who both graduated from the University of Texas in El Paso (UTEP) in Texas,USA will be appearing together at the IAAF biggest stage.

While this is the first time that reigning Commonwealth Games 100m hurdles champion, Amusan will be competing in Rabat, it is Okagbare's third consecutive trip to the North African city.

Okagbare will be competing in the 200m at the Diamond League Meet in Rabat and she would fancy her chances as she has the fastest time in the world this year.
