Sierra Leone 100 meters sprinter, Ngozi Musa on Thursday failed to reached the finals of the 100m in the ongoing Confederation of African Athletics (CAA) Senior African Championships in Durban, South Africa.
The U.S based sprinter who however did qualify to the semi-finals of the event could not make the last eight of the race.
Musa advanced from her Heat two (2) after clocking a less impressive 11.71seconds to finish third behind heat winner Assia Qraziki of Morocco and Swaziland’s Phumlile Qndzinisa who finished first and second respectively with a time of 11.45sec and with 11.67seconds.
Musa will now run in the 200 meters on Saturday with both her country women, Aisha Naibe-wey and Hafsatu Kamara in action as well.
Aisha Naibe-wey will participate in the 400m hurdles event while Hafsatu Kamara who left the U.S late due to logistical issues will participate in the 200 meters only.
Sierra Leone was expected to take along five athletes all from the United States of America (USA) but the team eventually made it to Durban with three athletes as both Maggie Barrie and Janice George both missed out due to lack of finance.
