Blessing Okagbare is a Nigerian track and field athlete who specializes in long jumping and short sprints and is also an Olympic and World Championships medallist in the long jump.
All seemed perfect as the Nigerian-born Olympic silver medallist from Beijing 2008 was making her way down the runway for her first effort of the Oslo Diamond League on Thursday evening.
She made sure she was behind the board, landed nicely and then…. her wig fell off!
Rather than being embarrassed by the incident, the accomplished Nigerian simply waited for her mark to be measured (6.21m) before picking up the hairpiece and proceeding to slip it back into place.
