LAGOS, Nigeria – Nigeria’s and Africa’s fastest woman, Blessing Okagbare, has married over the weekend and so highlighted again an exceptional year for herself.

The sprinter had her traditional marriage in Sapele, Delta state and then also a classical wedding the day later. She got married to her sweetheart Otegheri Jude Igho, a football player. She is not planning to compete during the indoor season.

“Getting married won’t in any way stop me from doing the usual things on the track,” said Okagbare. “I have been looking forward to this moment and by the Grace of God, we will celebrate it with everything.”

“But one thing I want to assure my fans and all Nigerians is that I will continue to work hard to put smiles on their faces as long as my body allows me to run and jump on the track.
