AFRCA’S FATEST MAN FERDINAND OMANYALA SUFFERS RARE LOSS A DAY AFTER HEROICS IN 100M
Omanyala’s dream of a treble in the ongoing championships came to an end on Saturday.
Ferdinand Omanyala failed to replicate his superb form in the 100 metre race as he fell short of qualifications into the semis of the 200M race.
The African sprint champion had all eyes on him on day 4 of the 22nd edition of the Senior African Championships in Reduit, Mauritius, but fell short in the heats.
Omanyala finished third in heat number 7 with a time of 21.16 seconds, thereby failing to make it to the semis.
Instead, it was World U20 100M champion, Letsile Tebogo, a Botswana, who won the heat after crossing the line in 20.48 seconds.
Kenya still has a chance of some glory in the 200 metres as the country’s fastest woman Maximilla Imali impressed in the heats to qualify for the semis.
Millicent Ndoro, who emerged as a bronze medallist in the women’s 4×100m in the 2019 African Games, also qualified for the semis.
