Favour Ofili smashes Blessing Okagbare’s Nigerian 200 meters national record of 22.04, that had stood since 2018, on Friday night at the Tom Jones Memorial Invitational in Gainesville, Florida.

Ofili, a sophomore at the Louisiana State University (LSU), blasted out of the blocks and posted a world leading time of 21.96 seconds to break the NCAA (collegiate) record of 22.02 set by Florida’s Kyra Jefferson at the 2017 NCAA championships.

The 19-year-old became only the second woman in African history to go sub-22 seconds in the 200 meters joining Tokyo 2020 Olympic silver medalist Christine Mboma of Namibia, who has a personal-best time of 21.78.
