Marriage will not affect my ability to run-Blessing Okagbare

Nigerian Olympic Medalist, Blessing Okagbare on Friday tied the knot with her heartthrob, Igho Otegheri and had the white wedding on Saturday.

The pretty lady got married to Otegheri, a former Heartland FC of Owerri soccer player, in Sapele, Delta State.

In an interview after the wedding with Guardian Newspaper, 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 (is) 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.

Happy married life to them.
