Blessing Okagbare
won gold for Nigeria
on Monday evening
in the women’s 100m
final.
The sprinter finished
first, ahead of
Jamaica’s Veronica
Campbell-Brown and
Kerron Stewart in a
time of 10.85 seconds
– a new
Commonwealth
Games record.
The 25-year-old told
BBC: “I am so excited right now! A new
season’s best and win.
“I’m happy I was able to put on a show. I
executed it and stayed patient like my coach
said I should and after 70 metres it just felt
easy! I still have the 200m and the long jump
and I’m looking forward to both of those
events now.”
The previous record of 10.91 seconds was set
12 years ago by Debbie Ferguson in
Manchester.
