“Marriage Won’t bar me from Running Again”- Blessing Okagbare


Blessing Okagbare is married! As reported earlier, she tied the knot with fellow athlete Igho Otegheri at St Patrick Catholic Church in Sapele,Delta State on Saturday, November 8,2014.

Shortly after her marital oath she assured her fans that her marriage won’t detract her from athletics.

“Getting married won’t in any way stop me from doing the usual things on the track,” said Okagbare. “I have been looking forward to this moment and by the Grace of God, we will celebrate it with everything.”

“But one thing I want to assure my fans and all Nigerians is that I will continue to work hard to put smiles on their faces as long as my body allows me to run and jump on the track.

“There are lots of work to be done and I have started training well ahead. I will return to the track soon after my wedding and I pray God to continue to guide me and my husband as we commence the journey of our married life,” she added.

The Nigerian track star described her husband as “nice and God fearing and those are some basic things I prayed for in a man”.

“He is kind and that is a great thing for me because he supports my life, my career and my aspirations,” Okagbare added.
