Team Africa’s Elijah Manangoi explains why he was more focused on winning his race rather than bother about the time because of the elimination format in play at the IAAF Continental Cup in Ostrava.

‪📺 #TeamAfrica’s Emmanuel Korir (#KEN) lived up to his billing as favourite in the men’s 800m as he and his team-mate, Nijel Amos (#Botswana) finished first and third respectively yesterday.

Korir won in 1:46.50, but he was pushed to the line by Team Americas’ Clayton Murphy. After the race, he told #AthleticsAfrica he wasn’t too pleased with the new format of elimination at the IAAF Continental Cup @iaafostrava2018‬

#Africa’s Marie-Josee Ta Lou and Julius Yego are hoping for an uplifting climax at the IAAF Continental Cup Ostrava 2018.

Ta Lou will be attempting an ambitious double before a sell-out crowd this weekend over 100m and 200m, and few would bet against the 29-year-old Ivorian in either event.

“It’s a year when I have had some personal problems and some physical problems, a very long season, but I am generally happy with how I have competed,” said Ta Lou. “I have managed to stay motivated, to race with a smile and I have been very consistent.”
