Blessing Okagbare, Nigeria’s medal hope in the 200m in IAAF World Athletics Championship in Doha has been disqualified for a second time.
She was disqualified on Monday in the heats for stepping outside of her lane.
Okagbare was first disqualified because of a mix-up by Nigeria’s track federation after she didn’t show up for the 100-meter races that she never intended to run.
After an appeal and a long wait, she was given the nod by IAAF to compete.
But when she got to the race she was disqualified for stepping outside of her lane.
