Blessing Okagbare's failure in the sprint appears to have weighed heavily on her confidence, leading the Beijing bronze medallist to place ninth in her Group A qualifying round of the women's long jump event.
Despite spirited efforts of Team Nigeria officials here to psyche her out of the depression of finishing last in the 100m final on Saturday night, Okagbare could not match her personal best jump of 6.97m. Her best jump of 6.34m was only good enough for the overall 17th position out of 28 jumpers.
Great Britain's Shara Proctor had the leading jump of 6.83m into Wednesday's final.
American Janay Deloach (6.81m) and Karin Mey Melis of Turkey (6.80m) were the other top jumpers of the day.
