share on:

Nigeria’s star athlete Blessing Okagbare has set her sights on winning an Olympic gold medal.

Okagbare grabbed headlines after a stunning performance at the Commonwealth games in Glasglow, and believes an Olympic gold would crown all her efforts.

Okagbare performed below par at the London 2012 Olympics, and would like to atone for it in Rio in 2016.

“Certainly, the next two years are going to be tough. Really tough and I want to do great things.

“For me it is not just about going out there to compete for a medal. I want to win an individual Olympic gold. It is good for your resume, it is good for your career and it is good for your future. This is what I am looking towards to in the next two years.

“I just want to get myself ready. And as long as the good Lord is giving me strength to go on, I will go for it and I know it is going to be a lot of work,” Okabgare said.
