Although Nigerian sprint champion, Blessing Okagbare, did not win gold in the 100 m final at the IAAF World Championship in Beijing, China, she’s still a champion.
Several news sources describe how she came last in the women’s race, and how Jamaica’s Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce won the race, while European champion, Dafne Schippers came in second place, and American Tori Bowie finished third.
Despite her loss in this race, Okagbare is still considered Nigeria’s fastest woman in the history of the world championships. For this reason, she is still a champion.
Besides, this isn’t the end of the 2015 IAAF road for her, as the 200m and the 4x100m races are still forthcoming.
