The Guinness Book of Records has honoured Nigeria’s track queen Blessing Okagbare as the athlete with the highest number of Diamond League appearances.
The 27-year-old has 38 appearances which is the most by any athlete in the tournament. Okagbare is the only Nigerian athlete to win two medals at an international athletics meeting.
The current Commonwealth Games 100m and 200m sprint champion is regarded as Nigeria’s best athlete of all time due to her number of titles and medals.
The International Amateur Athletics Federation (IAAf) Diamond League is an annual series of track and field meetings which began in 2010.
It replaced the IAAF Golden League, which held from 1998 to 2010, with the next meeting due in London in 2016.
