Africa’s fastest woman, Blessing Okagbare shares her inspirational story in Nike's #AfricaSoFast campaign. She also touches on her career goals and achievements thus far.
She holds the best record in Africa for 100m race at 10.79 seconds.
In her feature, the 26 year-old Nigerian athlete says, "I’d like to break 10.7 seconds for the 100 and 22.8 seconds for the 200, and I want to jump further than 7.3 meters in the long jump. I have goals written up and posted around my room. I write them as soon as I wake, when I’m feeling fresh." She further adds, "It's all about setting goals and keeping your mind set on those goals. Don't ever give up on yourself."
