yb-baboloki-thebe

Another one of our athletes has done Botswana proud by comfortably breezing into the Diamond League Finals. Our very own 400m tracker, Baboloki “G-man” Thebe last night booked himself a place at the upcoming London finals after accumulating 29 golden points after five meetings in his debut season. Thebe did astoundingly well and is sitting pretty at the top of the leader board.

The Bahamas’ Steven Gardiner of the Bahamas is on second position with 16 points, while American Vernon Norwood and LaShawn Merritt are on third and fourth position respectively. Botswana’s Isaac “Badman” Makwala bagged 11th position with 6 points, while injured Karabo Sibanda made it into 12th position with 5 points.
