The hopes of UDs to reiterate her supremacy as title holder of the gold medal for the 5000m men’s race came to an end when Temezeu Pierre was forced to abandon the race just after the first round. Unfortunately this unique athlete suffered an injury last evening while preparing for the race and as such couldn’t perform as expected.
Unlike yesterday where the athletic squad harvested 1 silver medal and 2 bronze medals, today was a dark day with only one bronze medal obtained by UDs as Neboo Kevine clichéd the medal at the female discus. Nevertheless hopes remained high as the athletes for both men and women in the 4 x 100m relay series namely Voufo Arnaul Dumas, Eyango Christain, Dempowo Valouche, Ayuk Takuson and Edjangmoua Mbella Adeline, Tsobze Vianny, Nebou Kevine, Nkemi Eroume respectively all qualified for the finals which are going to take place tomorrow April 25th 2017.DT
