400m runner Gerald Bashingi of Botswana Defence Force Athletics club Lon Thursday won Botswana Athletics Association 1st Series track and field competitions held at the national stadium.
Bashingi has been missing in action since 2015 due to a muscle injury and he missed some of the qualifiers for major competitions.
He clocked 49:27 followed by Rebeilwe Thwanyane of University of B botswana with 50:60 and Thuso Meski of Moroka Athletics Club who came third with 50:67.
In the ladies 400m category, Nancy Budzani from Sebina won the race with 1:02:93, Kendy Theetso of UB took second position with 1:03:98 time and August Pelaelo finished on third position clocking 1:11:01.
Baboloki Thebe won the 200m clocking 21:16 and Christine Botlogetswe won the women’s 200m category with a 23:84 time.
Other events were 5000m, 1500m, 800m, 200m, hurdles, high jump and long jump.
In an interview with Voice Sport after the race Bashingi said that these events were changing lives through elite competitions, he explains how he was using the race to test his level of fitness and said he was happy with his performance.
He said he will work on his fitness to improve his time. “My target this season is to qualify for Commonwealth games and I will continue taking part in the upcoming BAA series. I will also work hard to ensure that I beat the qualifying time 47:02.
I won a BOTESSA race in 2016 and PTIA 2017 and it was a build up to this season,” said Bashingi.
Once you are in the system and decide you like the play slot games online you have joined, they want you to keep coming back. The idea is that you’ll get hours of entertainment and they’ll get to keep a little bit of your money for their trouble. Your hope, obviously, is that you’ll come out a winner. And that is also a real risk the casinos take.
But given the intense competition between the hundreds of online casinos, you can get an idea of how many there are on this list of no deposit websites at Beyond2015.org. There isn’t much incentive for players to hang around if they can join a new casino every couple of weeks and get more welcome bonuses.
You can only get 1 welcome bonus per casino and with hundreds of casinos out there, the casinos know you could easily move on and never come back to them. So they compete with welcome bonuses by offering their regular members other bonuses after they complete their welcome bonus requirements.
