Nigerian sprint sensation, Blessing Okagbare has beaten Usain Bolt, the World Record Holder to the 2016 athlete with the highest diamond league appearances. Blessing is reported to have participated in 38 diamond league events higher than any other athlete in the world, according to the records.
Between July 3, 2010 and September 5, 2014, Blessing Okagbare, a multi-talented athlete took part in 38 Diamond League events where she specializes in the 100m and 200m sprints and long jump.
Though Usain Bolt was awarded IAAF world athlete of the year in 2008, 2009, 2011, 2012 and 2013, yet he has failed to make as much appearances as the multi-talented Nigerian. Blessing Okagbare is the Commonwealth Games record for the 100m women at the fastest time of 10.85 seconds.
