JOBODWANA BREAKS SA RECORD AGAIN
Anaso Jobodwana broke the national 200m record for the second time in two weeks, with a superb performance at the Prefontaine Classic in Eugene on Saturday.
The 22-year-old sprinter took second place in 20.04 seconds at the Diamond League meeting, with a 0.9m/s tailwind, to chip 0.02 off the SA mark he set in the Cayman Islands earlier this month.
Controversial American speedster Justin Gatlin won the race in 19.68, with Jamaican Nickel Ashmeade taking third place in 20.18.
Meanwhile, Johan Cronje ended eighth in the men’s mile in 3:53.02, crossing the line 1.32 outside his own national record, with Ayanleh Souleiman of Djibouti winning a close race up front in 3:51.10.
