Blessing Okagbare-Ighoteguonor ran 10.99 seconds, her first sub-11 seconds performance of the season to place third behind Elaine Thompson (10.94) and Dafne Schippers (10.97) at the IAAF Diamond League meeting in London on Sunday.
Blessing thus made a statement ahead of next month’s 16th IAAF World Championships also in London.
It was the Nigerian’s first sub-11 seconds performance in the 100m in over 21 months and 17th of her career.
The last time she ran a sub-11 seconds in the 100m was way back in September 2015 at the IAAF Diamond League meeting in Zurich where she closed her season at 10.98 seconds.
