IAAF Diamond League: Okagbare Set For Action In Paris
Blessing Okagbare is yet to hit the right note as far as competing in the IAAF Diamond League is concerned this season.
But she has another chance on Saturday at the Paris leg of the money-spinning event to create amazing tunes on the track.
The French leg of the IAAF Diamond League will boast of its best line-ups in recent years.
As much as seven Olympic champions will be on parade in the French capital and Okagbare will have to be at her very best if she is to make the cut at Charléty Stadium on July 1.
Billed to compete in the Women's 100m event, Okagbare will be hoping to make the under-11 second mark in the 100m event for the first time in two years.
The last time Okagbare ducked inside 11 seconds was at the IAAF Diamond League meeting in Shanghai where she ran 10.98 seconds.
This year the Nigerian holds an 11.16 seconds personal season best and will be hoping to do better in Paris, a ground she will fondly remember for some spectacular performances.
