Saadi makes tame exit

Muscat Daily - - SPORTS -

Mus­cat - Mo­hammed al Saadi, Oman’s lone rep­re­sen­ta­tive at the IAAF World Cham­pi­onships, made a tame exit af­ter clock­ing 21.50 sec­onds to fin­ish last in his first round heat of the 200m race in Lon­don, UK, on Mon­day.

Ja­maican star Yo­han Blake won the heat with ease in a time of 20.39s as the 18 semi­fi­nal­ists were spot­ted. Saadi took part in the worlds as a wild­card en­try from the Oman Ath­let­ics As­so­ci­a­tion (OAA). With star sprinter Barakat al Harthi un­able to achieve the qual­i­fy­ing mark in 100m, the OAA de­cided to send Saadi for his maiden ex­pe­ri­ence at the cham­pi­onships.
