Blessing Okagbare, 32, scorched to a 10.63-second finish, tying Jamaican Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce for the world lead in 2021.

She didn’t make the finals of the 100m four years ago. She has not competed in a sprint final since 2015, when she finished eighth in 11.02 seconds at the World Athletics Championships in Beijing, China.

Many local sports fans mistakenly believed that Old Father Time had scheduled a meeting with the 2014 double Commonwealth Games champion, and that her time had come to an end.
