Nigerian athlete, Blessing Okagbare, has won gold in the women’s 200m at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games on Thursday in a time of 22.25 seconds.

Okagbare is the 11th athlete in the history of the Commonwealth Games who has won both the 100 and the 200 metres.

Nigeria’s Blessing Okagbare added the Commonwealth 200m crown to the 100m title she won three days earlier.

It was an effortless win for the Nigerian athlete who had no difficulty racing to the finish line in a triumphant victory.

Okagbare won the race in 22.25 seconds despite slowing down towards the end of the race.

She was dominant as expected, using her blistering leg speed.

England duo, Jodie Williams and Bianca Williams were second and third respectively.
