Blessing Okagbare.

Nigerian born Saudi athletics head coach, Taiwo Ariyo, is positive about Blessing Okagbare’s performance at the upcoming World Athletics Championships in Moscow, Russia, but has asked the country’s athletics enthusiasts not to heap pressure on the sprint queen.

Okagbare has had a good outing so far this athletic season and will hope to gloriously cap it up in her third appearance at the World Championship. In two IAAF Diamond League meetings, Okagbare did impressive wind assisted 10.75secs in the 100m and 7.14m in the Long jump.

Ariyo, who is currently with his athletes preparing for the World Championship in Baden, Germany said: “She should be able to get her first world championships medal but Nigerians should let her be, they shouldn’t expect too much from her.

“It is not easy placing all your hopes on one athlete in a country of 160 million people. Okagbare is another blessing to Nigerians but who is with her to fight the battle.

“If you understand this sport, you will feel sad for Nigeria to be talking about one person when we have opportunity to do the right thing and have ten Okagbare,” added Ariyo.
