Sibanda improving with each race

Botswana’s rising 400m sensation Karabo Sibanda collected five points at his maiden IAAF Diamond League in Doha on Friday. Sibanda came fourth at the Doha meet, behind Bahamas’ Steven Gardiner who finished first with 44.60 which is the world lead. In second and third position were USA’s LaShawn Merritt and Tony McQuay recording 44.78 and 44.92 seconds respectively. Sibanda recorded 45.05 seconds – his Season Best (SB) time. This means the young runner has improved from his previous races.  All eyes will be on Sibanda this season to see if he will be able to reproduce what Nijel Amos did in the past. Amos had been the 400m champion of the diamond league in two occasions and the world will be looking to see if another Motswana will do the same. There is still plenty of time for Sibanda to accumulate points since the Doha meet was his first appearance at the Diamond League.
