Okagbare’s ‘unstable wig’ steals the show during long jump event


Although Blessing Okagbare-Ighoteguonor finished in seventh place at a Diamond League event on Thursday, her unstable wig ensured she made headlines around the world.

The Nigerian sprint queen recorded a jump of 6.21 metres in Oslo, Norway, but her hair piece was nearly half a metre ahead.

Once the white flag was raised, the 28-year-old Olympian, unfazed, returned to the sandpit to retrieve the wig.

Here’s a video of the ridiculous incident.
