Breaking: Njisane qualifies for 6th fastestGary Acosta
Friday, August 12 2016
Njisane Phillip clocked an extraordinary time of 9.813 seconds this afternoon in Brasil to qualify 6th fastest in the Men's Sprint. Phillip would now face off against Chao Xu of China in the 1/16 final later today at approximately 4:50pm (T&T Time). Sporting his slick all black speedsuit that he designed, looked comfortable coming out of the his acceleration phase as he was timed in his first 100m at 4.821 seconds, Njisane would finish with a top time.
The 1/16 Final is a grudge match of their quarter-final matchup at the Hong Kong World Cup in January where the Chinese got the upper hand. 8 monts later, we have a feeling that this will change!
