Nanyondo, Nakaayi Through To The Women 800m Semi-Finals

Uganda’s 800m Women running pair of Winnie Nanyondo and Halima Nakaayi have registered progress. The two managed to make it to the semi-finals of the Women’s 800m race in the 2021 Tokyo Olympics on Friday July 30.

Nanyondo posted a time of 2:02.02 and finished second in the Heat one that France’s Renelle Lamote won. She recorded a time of 2:01.92.

Nakaayi came in at the fourth position in Heat two in a time of 2:00.92 but missed out on automatic qualification. She consequently had to wait for all the six heats to get done.

The 2019 World Champion’s time became the second fastest of all the athletes who finished outside the top three heats. She hereby booked her place in Saturday’s semis.

The Saturday semi-finals will take place at the Olympic Stadium at 2:50 pm with the final slated for Tuesday, August 03.

However, Uganda’s Albert Chemutai missed a place in the men’s 3000m steeplechase final. This came after he finished ninth in a time of 8:28.81.

Though, he became the third man after Benjamin Kiplagat and Jacob Araptany to take part in the Steeplechase at the Olympic Games.
