27 Apr. 2015 – The 19th Arab Athletics Championship has come to an end without any medal for Lebanon. But the athletes did good performances as an opening of the track and field season.
On day 3, Aziza SBEITY and Nour HADID both ran the 200m semi-finals and were able to qualify to the finals with 24.47 and 21.82 respectively with strong back wind. On the other hand, Hassan KARAKALLA ran the 800 meters semi-final in 1:58.44 but couldn’t qualify for the finals. This was the first international competition for Hassan.
On the last day, Aziza clocked 24.39 in the finals to take 5th place with a wind of +2.2 m/s. While Nour ran the same distance in 22.09 with a +2.5 m/s wind to finish in 7th place.
Knowing that the season just started, with these results, our athletes will be able to do even better. More major championships are coming next, like the world championship in August and the Arab Games in October, so all the best for the rest of the season!
