Athletic champion, Blessing Okagbare’s wig falls off during competition
By Patricia Uyeh,
Nigerian track and field athletic champion, Blessing Okagbare, who was making her way down the runway for her first effort at the Bislett games of the Oslo Diamond League on Thursday evening, had an embarrassing situation.
The Nigerian-born Olympic silver medallist was making sure she was behind the board to land nicely when her wig fell off her head.
Instead of feeling sorry for herself, Blessing simply waited for her mark to be measured (6.21m) before picking up her wig from the ground then putting it back in place.
