This past Saturday was a big day for 2011 world champion, Amantle Montsho as she was on her first appearance on track after serving her two-year ban. Considering the fact that she hasn’t been getting game time, Montsho did exceptionally well when she finished on position 3 in 400 metres event.
Amantle who started on lane 7, proved that she is still a force to be reckoned with, as she blasted from the starting block, negotiated her curves properly and in the back straight she pushed herself well. Lydia Jele finished on position one recording 52.86, followed by her training partner, Botlogetswe with 53.04, while Montsho clocked 54.01 to finish on position three. Position four went to Goitseone Seleka with 54.34.
Jele also beat Amantle in 200 metres, by finishing first with 23.70, Monstho settled for position two with 24.41, Ontiretse Molapisi finished third with 25.19. On position four was a young and promising Refilwe Murangi, who clocked 25.89. Her coach, Mogomotsi Otsetswe was happy that the athlete finished on position 3 in 400 metres and 2 in 200 metres. Welcome back champ!
