Okagbare Sprints Past Campbell to the Finish Line In Oregon.

Oregon, USA- Blessing Okagbare showed off her 2013 fascinating form on Saturday, completing the women 100-meter race in 10.75 sec to emerge runner- up behind London Olympic gold medalist Shelly- Ann Fraiser- Pryce at the IAAF Diamond League in Eugene, Oregon.

Yesterday’s (Saturday) outcome is the 25- year- old’s second personal best in less than a month, short of her 11.00sec in Shanghai on May 18, due to about +2.1 increases in wind gust.

The result saw the Nigerian track queen improve on her Diamond League ranking (100 meter), placed second ahead of Veronica Campbell- Brown of Jamaica and Carmelita Jeter of USA, the pair tied in third.

The race was a repeat of the Shanghai meet outcome a fortnight ago as Campbell- Brown finished third in 10.78sec, while Fraser- Pryce flew from the block and maintained her pace all the way to finishing 10.71sec.
