Agnes Mutindi Friday posted a Personal Best of 15.72 seconds but it wasn't enough to secure her a place in the semi-finals of 100 metres hurdles at the ongoing World Athletics Under-20 Championships. 

“Training for two months with Covid-19 lockdown really can’t produce the much desired results,” said Mutinda, who now aims to take her training to the next level. “All that I will need is good coaching and facilities.”
