Okagbare wins women’s 100m title

The Africa’s Sprint Queen returned with a Season Best Time of 11.05s ahead of her Ivorian rival and current African champion, Marie Josee Ta Lou, who posted a time of 11.09s while Crystal Emmanuel of Canada was third in 11.30s.

It was Okagbare’s 60th appearance in the prestigious Diamond League and she marked it with her first-ever win in Rabat.

In her previous outings this year in the Diamond League, Okagbare in Doha finished in the third position in the 200m while it was slightly better at the Shanghai Diamond League where she finished second in the 100m.

Before finally breaking the jinx on Sunday, Okagbare had failed to win any of her previous Diamond League races in Rabat.
