Former Miner, Blessing Okagbare captured third place in the 200m after coming in only six thousandths of a second behind second place at the World Championships on Friday.

It was a dash to the finish line between Okagbare and Murielle Ahoure of the Ivory Coast, as Okagbare clocked in a time of 22.32 claiming bronze at the meet.

While Shelly-Ann Fraser- Pryce secured first place for Jamaica with a time of 22.17 and Ahoure took second place crossing the finish line with a time of 22.32 (W:-0.3).

Unable to determine a winner with the naked eye, officials reviewed a photo finish, and determined that Ahoure had won the silver medal.

With such a close finish, both Okagbare and Ahoure claimed Africa’s first two World Championship medals in this event.

This is the second medal for the Nigeria native at the 2013 IAAF World Championships. Okagbare also won the silver earlier this week in the long jump.

Hoping to join Okagbare, as a medalist is former Miner Churandy Martina, as he competes in the final heat for 200m tomorrow, after finishing fifth out of 24 competitors in the semi-final with a time of 20.13.
