Nigeria’s Blessing Okagbare beats Olympic champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce in the 100m at the London Anniversary Games. The olympic sprinter took the race in 12.70 seconds and in so doing broke the 100m african record which was previously held by her.

She finished ahead of Barbara Pierre of the United States (10.85), and Jamaica’s Fraser-Pryce, who finished in 4th place.

Blessing Okagbare, who had a fairly disappointing Olympic finals race has bounced back very over the past couple of months, and right now she’s Africa’s fastest woman.
