Nigerian Stars, Sadjo And Mwavwang Ready To Defend Okpekpe Race Titles

The duo of Ismael Sadjo and Patience Mwavwang will be seeking to successfully defend the Okpekpe International 10km Road Race titles they won last year.

Sadjo ran 31:53 to win the event last year but will need to be at his very best and prepare to break 31 minutes for the first time in his career to ward off the challenge that will be posed by Francis James who ran 30:47 to win the 10km race at the Lagos Access Bank Marathon in Lagos in February.

Gang James Boyi (30:51) who also ran inside 31 minutes in Lagos will also be in Okpekpe to challenge for the title.
Sadjo’s best in Okpekpe was the 31.06 he ran to win at the inaugural edition of the race in 2013 (before the label status) and a repeat performance could earn him the title for the second straight year.
