The 200m final of the IAAF World Championships was dubbed a Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce- Allyson Felix contest but, a 40m twist to the sprint had the American Olympic gold medalist end her Moscow championships with an injury.

Felix pulled up with what appeared to be a hamstring injury 40m into the race as Ivory Coast’s Murielle Ahoure took second sprint silver, piping Nigeria’s Blessing Okagbare, who claimed bronze, by six thousandths of a second.

Jamaica’s Fraser-Pryce successfully clinches the world sprint double in 22.17secs, while Okagbare and Ahoure were given the same time, 22.32secs with the wind speed recorded to be -0.3m/s.

After winning silver in the long jumps, Okagbare’s bronze medal places Nigeria in 21st position on the medal table and 18th on the placing table.

Meanwhile the quartets of Patience Okon George, Bukola Abogunloko, Omolara Omotosoho and Regina George have qualified Nigeria for the women’s 4×400m relay Final.

Racing in the Heat 2, Nigeria recorded a Season Best 3 minutes, 27.39secs to emerge runners-up behind Team GB and qualify for Saturday’s final.

Earlier in the day (Friday) Tosin Oke, whose season has been blighted by a recurring injury, crashed out of the qualification round of the triple jump as half-fit athlete had to pull out of the event.
