Sports Falilat Ogunkoya believes Blessing Okagbare can win gold in the 200m today

Former Nigerian athlete Falilat Ogunkoya has revealed that she is not surprised with the exploits of Blessing Okagbare at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow,Scotland.

Okagbare on Monday emerged as the 100m champion,recording a Games' best of 10.85secs when she defeated other athletes to win gold.

On Wednesday,Okagbare effortlessly qualified for the semifinal of the 200m event and is in good stead to still win the gold medal in the finals on Thursday.

And Ogunkoya who herself is a former African 400m champion said that she was never in doubt about Okagbare's capabilities coming into the Games.

“I was not surprised when she won the women’s 100m with a new Commonwealth Games record of 10.85 seconds because she is in a very good shape,” said Ogunkoya.

Already,she is tipping Okagbare to equally replicate the 100m feat and win the 200m as well.

"But if the field is very strong and the other finalists pushed her by giving her a strong competition, she will not only win the 200m gold medal she will also run a sub-22,” Ogunkoya added.
