Batswana Letsile Tebogo, faster and stronger over 100m

Published on : Modified :

It’s confirmed, Botswana athletics has a young sprinter of very high class. At 19, Letsile Tebogo retained his title of junior world champion in the 100 meters on the night of August 2 to 3, 2022 in Colombia. And he did it by bettering his own world record with insolent ease.

A blue jersey from Botswana running down the blue track of the Cali Stadium. Letsile Tebogo, irresistible, will pick up a new world gold medal among juniors after a first win a year earlier in Nairobi. Admittedly, the 1,000 meters of altitude, the favorable wind (0.8 m/s), the new generation spikes favor performance, but the technique of this pure talent impresses.

In 9 seconds 91, he improves by 3 hundredths the junior world record he had established in July during the series of the Senior World Championships in Eugene in the United States. ” The goal was to have fun and get people back home to enjoy watching athletics. I did my best. The world record was not part of the plan, but these are things that happen naturally without thinking about it. »

And again, Tebogo did not push to the end. So superior, like Usain Bolt in his time, that he allows himself to run the last twenty meters by turning his head towards his dolphin and waving to him. A lack of respect ? He swears not and reminds us that sprinting is also sometimes brainwashing. ” It’s all about self-confidence. What I did was I intimidated them into being afraid of me. Like that, I ran without any pressure. On social networks, Usain Bolt hailed the race of Letsile Tebogo, the Botswana nugget who could train from next month in the United States.
