Before he lined up for the 200-metre event at the Cayman Invitational track and field event, Olympian Anaso Jobodwana had a feeling he was about to get the national mark, writes Mark Etheridge.
And that feeling proved to be spot on as he blitzed to a new national mark of 20.06.That performance bettered Morné Nagel’s 13-year-old mark of 20.11
‘Yes I actually did feel like I had it in my legs,’ Jobodwana told Road to Rio 2016 on Friday. ‘I was feeling good at training and I felt like if I was able to stay composed and stick to the race plan I would get it or at least a PR.’
What was the aspect of the race that impressed the King William’s Town flyer most? ‘Well, I was pleased with the way I was coming off the bend. My start was not that great so my race set-up was not that good.’
The question on most people’s lips is when do we get to see him running again. The answer to that: ‘I’m running at the Prefontaine Classic her in the United States at the end of the month.’
