ALI Ngaimoko clocked a new personal best over the 200m distance as he raced to the Africa Senior Athletics Championships due in Nairobi in August.

The sprinter from Kampala International University clocked a hand time of 20.7 seconds during the third national track and field trial at Namboole on Saturday.

Emily Nanziri was the other runner who put up an impressive time of 11.7 seconds in the 100m to also run inside the continent's biggest athletics event.

In an event that was full of surprises, Ngaimoko had a good start and by the time he reached the bend, it was about what time he would post.

“It was a good time. I am still improving on my speed work,” said the sprinter, who also promised to improve in the other distances.

He beat former national cham¬pion Stephen Odwar of Ndejje into second place.
