Nkhasi to return to track in Durban

Maseru – Lesotho Olympian Namakoe Nkhasi ( Pictured) will return to the track next Tuesday at the ASA Speed Series to be held at the King’s Park Stadium in Durban, South Africa.
Nkhasi said his preparations for the competition have been smooth and he is ready to impress. Nkhasi qualified for the Rio 2016 Olympics last August; however, his efforts at the world’s biggest sporting event were not enough to earn him a medal.

Even though the Olympian did not camp ahead of the Speed Series he told thepost on Tuesday that he has been preparing with his training partner in Soweto where he is based.
Despite going into the competition as one of the favourites in the 16-strong 10 000 metres field, Nkhasi does not want to put himself under pressure.
However, he vowed to do his best to improve his best personal time of 28:06:33 minutes.

“I am ready; my preparations for the competition have been good so far even though I am not in camp,” Nkhasi said.
“I have been training with my training partner here in Soweto. I took three weeks to prepare and I am targeting to run a World Championships standard time.”
“I will see what happens during the race but I need to try my best to run a fast time and, yes, I am going to try to beat my personal best.”
