True to expectations from expectant Nigerians fans, Blessing  Okagbare has won her 100m heat to move into the women’s semi-final holding, Saturday night, at the Olympic Stadium in London.

If she qualifies, Okagbare, who clocked 10.93secs in Friday night’s race, her personal best so far, is just a race shy of featuring in the 100m finals holding an hour after the semifinals races are completed. She is joined by compatriot Gloria Asomnu, who returned a time of 11.13 in her heat to qualify for the penultimate stage of the women’s 100m.
