Nigeria’s Blessing Okagbare raced and jumped to the top of the IAAF Diamond League rankings  Sunday in Shanghai,China with victory in the long jump and 200m events.

                           
The world championships long jump silver medal winner last year in Moscow leapt a distance of 6.86m to win the event and the  maximun four points on offer.                                             

Okagbare also took full advantage of Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pyrce’s absence to win the 200m in a 22.36 meeting record.

Both mark and time are personal season’s best for the double IAAF World Championships medallist.  Her 22.36 run is also her third fastest time ever in the event.
