Share the News

The US-based athletes are showing good form as the indoor track competition gets underway in the USA Junior College Program.

22-year-old Isila Apkup has clocked in encouraging times over 60m and 200m in her first two competitions.

She clocked a sensational 400m time of 56.94 seconds at the Kansas state university, Pittsburg.

Teammate Leonie Beu running in the outside lane finished with a time of 57.85 seconds.

Ephraim Lerkin also ran under 1min 55 seconds for the 800m leg of the distance medley relay and followed this up with an excellent 1.22 seconds in the individual 600m race.

Emmanuel Wanga recorded pleasing times of 6.98secs for 60m and 49.59 in the 400m. Running in the same 400m race Shadrick Tansi paid the price for an overly aggressive first 200m and faded in the closing stages to finish in 50.95secs

The Kansas based athletes have two more competitions on their calendar before the Regional Championships set for 20th February and the Indoor National Championships in March 2021.
